VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A female pedestrian recently killed in Victorville was identified by her family as 26-year-old Emily Salgado.
On Tuesday, August 30, 2022, at 7:25 a.m., deputies from the Victorville Police Department, along with rescue personnel from the Victorville Fire Department and American Medical Response, responded to a vehicle versus pedestrian traffic collision near the intersection of D Street and 11th Street in Victorville.
When they arrived, Emily was pronounced deceased at the scene. The driver of the vehicle stayed at the scene and cooperated with the police.
The investigation revealed that Emily was struck in the eastbound number one lane of D Street, between the intersections of 11th Street and Stoddard Wells Road, after she attempted to walk across the roadway.
Based on preliminary findings, alcohol, drugs, vehicle speed, and other reckless driving maneuvers did not play a factor in the collision.
