One witness said the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed and for unknown reasons veered and collided with the traffic signal light pole in front of the Walgreens. The impact caused the motor of the Mazda to be thrown onto the sidewalk and the bumper to wrap around the large steel pole. 

A security guard from a nearby business told VVNG he heard the impact but he never heard the sound of the brakes. 

Sheriff’s officials said the driver crossed from the westbound lanes to the eastbound lanes of Bear Valley Road, struck a curb, drove on the sidewalk, and collided into the traffic signal pole on the southeast corner of the intersection.

The identity of the deceased individual will be released pending notification of next of kin. 

The collision remains under investigation and any witnesses are asked to contact Deputy S. Lopiccolo or Deputy D. Holland from the Hesperia Station at 760-947-1500
