California Highway Patrol helicopter H-80 was already in the area and offered to land at the scene. Firefighters shut down traffic on Luna Road in order to allow the helicopter to land on the roadway. The patient was subsequently airlifted to Loma Linda University Medical Center.

According to one witness, a young adult male was covered in blood after a quad accident. “It appears he may have lost control and the quad flipped over causing head trauma. Prayers for a speedy recovery” stated the witness in a Victor Valley News Group comment.
