HESPERIA, Calif. (VVNG.com) A woman in her 40’s died after being involved in a two-vehicle traffic collision Thursday night.

The accident was reported around 7:44 p.m at the intersection of Maple Avenue and Olive Street in Hesperia.

Firefighters from the San Bernardino County Fire Department, and Hesperia Deputies from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department responded and located an unconscious female driver adult inside a Honda Accord, and another male adult in a 2014 Dodge Challenger, officials confirmed.

“My brother checked on one of the drivers. Unfortunately, she was unresponsive and had a low pulse,” Stacie Miller posted in the Victor Valley News group.

The female was extricated and transported to Desert Valley Hospital where she later died from her injuries, stated Deputy Eric Getts with the Hesperia Sheriff’s station.

The male driver of the Challenger was transferred to Arrowhead Regional Center with a fractured leg.
