VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — The Elote Man who was assaulted and robbed earlier this week in Victorville went back to work tonight and sold out!

Victor Valley residents showed up in droves to show their support for their beloved Elote Man who returned back to work on Friday.

By 4:30 pm the corner of Hughes Road and Rodeo Drive already had a line of people waiting for him to open up his elote cart business.

The line never let-up as people kept coming and going. By 6:30 pm Moises Aguilar, or best known as the Elote Man had sold out.

Moises and his wife Izabel make their living as street vendors and really love the community they serve. Over the years, Moises has built a fan base of loyal customers who love his elotes!

When they heard he had been assaulted and robbed over $60, it made people angry and upset. A Gofundme created for Moises two days ago, has raised $4,000 from 210 donors.

Izabel told VVNG that her husband is beyond grateful for the support the community has shown him. “We want to thank everyone who’s helped us and we wish them all the blessings.”

14-year-old Katelyn was one of the many people who supported Moises Friday tonight.

ADELANTO, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Several people were injured in a T-bone crash at the intersection of Sheep Creek near El Mirage Roads Saturday night.

According to the California Highway Patrol incident logs, the traffic accident was reported at about 9:30 PM on August 8th and involved a silver Chevy Tahoe and a silver Ford F-150.

San Bernardino County Firefighters responded and located the Tahoe with major damage to the passenger side and used extrication tools to remove a young child. A female adult sitting in the front passenger was critically injured and a helicopter was requested to airlift her to a trauma center.

A CHP helicopter H-80 landed in the roadway and subsequently flew the injured woman to Loma Linda University Medical Center.

Jessica Christopherson was on her way home from work when she drove up to the accident and heard children inside the SUV screaming and pulled over to call 911. Jessica said the little girl’s leg was pinned but when firefighters removed her from the vehicle she only had some scrapes.

According to Jessica, the dad in the Tahoe was okay and another little girl was shaken up and all three were taken by ground ambulance to LLUMC. The driver of the pickup truck sustained a gash to the back of his head.

Jessica told VVNG she’s almost been involved in several accidents on El Mirage Road due to people speeding and would like to see at least a 3-way stop sign instead of just one.

The California Highway Patrol Victorville Station is handling the investigation into the cause of the crash.
