APPLE VALLEY, Calif. (VVNG.com) — The woman killed in a weather-related crash on Bear Valley Road last week has been identified as a 23-year-old Victorville resident.
San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Coroner’s Division officials said Sharon Rogers was pronounced deceased at a local hospital following the two-vehicle crash.
It happened Friday, November 29, 2019, on the Bear Valley Road bridge that crosses the Mojave Narrows, west of Jess Ranch Parkway, in Apple Valley.
San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Deputies and Apple Valley Fire personnel responded to the scene and found Rogers, a passenger in a red 1998 Chevy Camaro, suffering from multiple injuries.
She was taken to a local hospital, where she was pronounced deceased at 7:31 AM, officials confirmed.
“Through preliminary investigation, it was determined that the Camaro was traveling eastbound on Bear Valley Road when the driver lost control due to black ice on the roadway,” officials said in a press release.
The Camaro slid sideways across the eastbound lanes into the westbound lanes of Bear Valley Road directly into the path of the Toyota, causing both to collide in the westbound lanes, authorities confirmed.
The driver of the Toyota, an adult male resident of Lucerne Valley, was also transported to a local area hospital with minor injuries.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, Major Accident Investigation Team is investigating the incident.
