VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Authorities are investigating after a driver was ejected and killed in a rollover crash early Wednesday.
The single-vehicle collision happened around 1:33 AM on October 7, 2020, on National Trails Highway/ D Street near the cement plant in Victorville.
Officers at the scene determined a silver Honda Accord was traveling north on National Trails Highway at a high rate of speed when the driver lost control while navigating a curve in the roadway.
According to a sheriff’s news release, “the vehicle slid across oncoming lanes of traffic and up over a dirt embankment causing the vehicle to flip and roll several times.”
