Juveniles Seriously Injured in Off-Road Accident

VICTORVILLE, Calif– An off-roading crash left four juveniles seriously injured on Saturday evening. The single vehicle crash was reported shortly after 4:30 p.m. on Friday, July 30th.

The four juveniles were off-roading in an Arctic Cat Wildcat side by side in the area of Verbena Road and Mono Road near the California Aqueduct.

According to a Victor Valley News reporter, based on the wreckage and tire marks it appears the juveniles were attempting to make a jump. The roll cage on the side by side was completely smashed down and the wheels were broken. The vehicle also dug out a huge divot in the rock hard dirt.

A male attempted to transport the injured juveniles by personal vehicle. However, the vehicle pulled over just west of the intersection of Bear Valley Road and Highway 395 and called dispatch for help.

Three of the patients were described as being critical and the fourth as delayed. A total of four ground ambulances responded to the scene.

Due to the extent of injuries, two air ambulances were requested to airlift three of the four patients to trauma hospitals.

Per scanner traffic, one of the three to be airlifted was transported to Desert Valley Hospital due to complications with his airway.

The story is developing and more information will be updated as it becomes available.
