VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) Deputies are investigating a rollover crash with alleged shots fired that left two people injured Monday evening.

The solo-vehicle rollover crash happened near the intersection of 7th Avenue and Nisqualli Road in Victorville on October 30, 2017.

“Deputies responded at 5:53 pm, to a report of a traffic collision and shots heard,” sheriff’s spokeswoman Cindy Bachman told Victor Valley News.

When deputies arrived, they located a sedan on its roof with multiple occupants outside the car lying on the ground. A nearby fire hydrant sheared by the crash gushed water for about 10 minutes.

As a precaution, and to ensure officer safety, several people from the vehicle were briefly detained while medical personnel treated the injured.

San Bernardino County Firefighters treated two patients at the scene, of which “both occupants [were] initially triaged as delayed, but were later upgraded to immediate,” said SB County Fire spokesman Eric Sherwin.

A “delayed” patient is a term used by firefighters to classify a patient with minor injuries. An “immediate” patient is a term used to classify a patient with critical injuries.

Witnesses described hearing at least nine gunshots. “I heard the shots it was a lot of them and so scary,” said Linda Miller.

The two men were airlifted to various trauma centers in critical condition but were both responsive.

The situation is unfolding and details surrounding the incident remain scarce at the moment. Please check back for updates.
