APPLE VALLEY, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A Good Samaritan who stopped at the scene of a traffic accident was allegedly stabbed by the driver of the rolled over vehicle Sunday night.
It happened at about 7:24 pm. in the 8200 block of Deep Creek Road in Apple Valley.
According to witnesses who asked to remain anonymous, the victim was one of a group of “off-roaders” who were returning home after a weekend of riding in the desert. As the group traveled northbound on Deep Creek Road they came across an SUV on its side and stopped to help.
According to the witness, the female driver of the SUV, whom they said smelled of alcohol, wanted them to push her car back on its wheels so she could leave the scene. When the Good Samaritans refused the driver of the SUV started cursing at them. At some point the woman pulled out a pair of scissors and stabbed one of the Good Samaritans in the chest before running from the scene.
The victim was treated at the scene and later airlifted to an out of area trauma center.
San Bernardino County Sheriff Deputies, Officers with the California Highway Patrol, a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s helicopter, and a K-9 assisted in the search for the suspect who was eventually located and taken into custody.
Information will be updated as it becomes available.
