VICTORVILLE-(VVNG.com): On Wednesday, February 24th at 4:52 p.m. deputies and medical personnel were dispatched to Bear Valley Road just west of Fish Hatchery Road for the report of a two-vehicle traffic collision.

Sheriff’s Public information officer, Mara Rodriguez told Victor Valley News that a 59-year-old Victorville man stated that the sun was in his eyes as he approached the top of the hill blinding him to the brake lights of a 2014 Chevy.

As a result, of the reported sun-glare the man rear-ended the Chevy that was driven by a 27-year-old Victorville woman. The man was transported by ground ambulance for the complaint of neck and back pain. The female declined treatment and no other injuries reported as a result of the collision.
