VICTORVILLE, CALIF. (VVNG.com) Two women were airlifted after their vehicle was struck, causing them to slam into a fence near the Casa Bella Apartments.
The accident occurred at 4:15 p.m. on Saturday afternoon on the 16900 block of Nisqualli Road.
According to Deputy Jeff Dean, the female driver of the Toyota Tundra pickup truck was traveling northbound on First Avenue attempting to make a left turn onto westbound Nisqualli Road. The Tundra collided into a Scion XB that was traveling eastbound on Nisqualli Road.
The impact sent the Scion crashing into a wrought iron fence at the Casa Bella Apartments. The two female occupants of the Scion appeared to have suffered extensive injuries.
The female driver of the Tundra and her son did not sustain any injuries. She explained to Victor Valley News that as she was attempting to turn left onto Nisqualli Road, another vehicle that was traveling eastbound was turning right onto First Avenue when the Scion behind it went around.
The two injured occupants were transported by air ambulance to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center and Loma Linda Medical Center.
Several people voiced their concerns about the need for a traffic signal at the intersection of Nisqualli and First Avenue.
This year a child was struck at the same intersection while walking home from school, and last year 22-year-old Jonathan Chavez and his best friend Matthew Potts died after their vehicle was struck causing them to also veer into the fence at the same apartment complex.
