VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) A crash involving a semi and a vehicle left one driver critically injured Thursday afternoon.

The crash was reported at about 4:00 p.m., near the Victorville Post Office in the 16300 block of Green Tree Blvd. and 6th Avenue.

According to the semi truck driver named Omar, he was traveling east bound on Green Tree Blvd. and attempting to make a right turn onto 6th Avenue when he was struck by a BMW from behind.

The BMW collided with the rear impact guards on the semi causing one of them to bend. The force of the crash caused the BMW to shred apart.

The driver of the BMW and sole occupant was transported to a local hospital where he is expected to survive his injuries. No other injuries were reported as a result of the crash.

The incident prompted deputies to shut down east and westbound lanes between Yates Road and Greenbriar Drive for approximately 1 hour.

Witnesses said a Corvette was driving erratically just before the crash and fled the scene. Deputies were looking to speak with the driver of a tan Corvette for questioning.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation by the Victorville sheriff’s department.

ADELANTO, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Several people were injured in a T-bone crash at the intersection of Sheep Creek near El Mirage Roads Saturday night.

According to the California Highway Patrol incident logs, the traffic accident was reported at about 9:30 PM on August 8th and involved a silver Chevy Tahoe and a silver Ford F-150.

San Bernardino County Firefighters responded and located the Tahoe with major damage to the passenger side and used extrication tools to remove a young child. A female adult sitting in the front passenger was critically injured and a helicopter was requested to airlift her to a trauma center.

A CHP helicopter H-80 landed in the roadway and subsequently flew the injured woman to Loma Linda University Medical Center.

Jessica Christopherson was on her way home from work when she drove up to the accident and heard children inside the SUV screaming and pulled over to call 911. Jessica said the little girl’s leg was pinned but when firefighters removed her from the vehicle she only had some scrapes.

According to Jessica, the dad in the Tahoe was okay and another little girl was shaken up and all three were taken by ground ambulance to LLUMC. The driver of the pickup truck sustained a gash to the back of his head.

Jessica told VVNG she’s almost been involved in several accidents on El Mirage Road due to people speeding and would like to see at least a 3-way stop sign instead of just one.

The California Highway Patrol Victorville Station is handling the investigation into the cause of the crash.
