At least one dead in crash on Mojave Drive in Victorville

VICTORVILLE, Calif. ( — At least one person died at the scene of a crash Friday morning.

It happened at about 11:19 a.m., October 6, 2023, at the intersection Mojave Drive and East Trail, in the city of Victorville.

The Victorville Fire Department, AMR, and San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies with the Victorville Station responded and located two vehicles; a gray pickup truck with front-end damage and a gray Chrysler PT Cruiser with rear-end damage.

Despite life-saving measures, one person was pronounced deceased at the scene, and another person was transported to a local hospital with unknown injuries.

One witness said she was behind pickup truck when the crash occurred.

“I was driving behind this elderly man. He wasn’t speeding. I believe he must’ve suffered a medical emergency,” stated Danelle Orta. “He just slammed into the back of the PT Cruiser without braking.”

Orta said she approached the man to ask if he needed help, and that’s when he made eye contact, closed his eyes, and passed away.

“We weren’t supposed to go that way that morning, we had a long trip but decided to backtrack to put gas,” stated Orta. ” My reasoning is God didn’t want him to pass alone. He went with people trying to help him.”

All westbound lanes at Mojave Drive and El Evado Road, and east bound lanes at East Trail and Mojave Drive, as well as northbound lanes on East Trail at Reno Loop were closed to traffic.

The road is expected to remain closed for an investigation. As of 12:35 p.m, a tow truck was on scene.

No further details were available.
