HESPERIA, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Authorities are asking for the public’s help in finding a Jorge Galvan, 35, wanted for leaving the scene of a crash that left one person critically injured.

On May 25, 2018, at about 9:20 pm, deputies from the Hesperia Police Department responded to a hit and run traffic collision at Sycamore Street and Balsam Avenue in Hesperia.

According to a witness, a tractor-trailer was backing into a residence in the 15100 block of Sycamore Street when a 1974 Chevy pick up truck speeding through the residential neighborhood slammed into the passenger side of the semi. The impact caused the pick-up truck to be pushed back about 1 foot causing a male passenger to be partially ejected from the truck and his legs pinned under the dashboard.

The driver, later identified as Galvan climbed out of the truck and crawled up the street to an awaiting SUV that arrived on scene minutes after the crash. witnesses told Victor Valley News, an unidentified woman helped Galvan into the SUV and knowingly left his critically injured male passenger partially ejected at the scene.

Following the crash, a small fire started in the engine compartment of the pick-up truck. The driver of the semi, who was uninjured acted quickly and used a fire extinguisher to put out the fire in order to help the trapped victim.

Firefighters responded and used the jaws of life to extricate the passenger from the vehicle and subsequently airlifted him to an out of area trauma center with life-threatening injuries.

According to investigators, Galvan’s last known address is in the Whittier area, and it is believed he may have been assisted back to that area from the High Desert. Investigators have obtained a Ramey Warrant for his arrest.

Galvan is described as a Hispanic Male Adult, 5’10”, 180 lbs., black hair and brown eyes. Evidence at the scene of the collision confirms Galvan sustained injuries to his face and upper body that would likely require medical attention.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call the Hesperia Sheriff’s Station at (760)947-1500. Callers wishing to remain anonymous are asked to call the We-Tip Hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME (27463) or you may leave information on the We-Tip website at www.wetip.com.

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — The State Department of Public Health has issued long-anticipated guidance allowing youth sports and physical education – including school-based, club, and recreational programs – to resume, as long as they are limited to groups of participants who regularly gather, such as a class or organized team, and only when physical distancing of at least six feet can be maintained.

Activities should take place outside to the maximum extent possible.

Sporting events, assemblies, and other activities that require close contact or that would promote congregating, such as tournaments and competitions, are not yet permitted either indoors or outdoors.

“This is an opportunity for young people to stay healthy, stay in shape, and be ready when the State allows team and other group activities to resume,” said San Bernardino County Public Health Director Corwin Porter. The County Health Officer has approved implementation of the guidance within San Bernardino County.
