VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) A major accident in Victorville left two people fighting for their lives Wednesday night.
Deputies responded at 9:30 p.m. to a three vehicle traffic collision that involved a Ford pickup truck, a BMW sedan, and a motorhome at La Paz Drives and the 15 Freeway.
Based on preliminary investigation, the pickup truck was exiting the NB I-15 from Roy Rogers Drive at a high rate of speed and failed to stop at the red light, authorities said.
