VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — San Bernardino County Coroner officials identified two drivers killed in a traffic collision in Victorville.
On Saturday, May 18, 2019, at about 6:46 A.M., deputies from the Victorville Station and rescue personnel from the Victorville Fire Department responded to a two-vehicle traffic collision near the intersection of US Highway 395 and Luna Road.
They found a 2018 blue Honda Civic with major front-end damage and a 2007 Mercedes Benz with extensive damage to the driver-side door.
The driver of a blue Honda, 28-year-old Ramiro Angulo, a resident of Victorville, was declared deceased at the scene at 7:08 a.m.
The driver of the silver 2007 Mercedes, 27-year-old, Erin Garybroaster, a resident of Victorville, was declared deceased at 7:12 a.m., the coroner’s website confirmed.
Deputies conducted an investigation and determined that Angulo was traveling southbound on US 395 Highway and Garybroaster was traveling eastbound on Luna Road when he entered the intersection on a red light, broadsiding the Mercedes.
