HESPERIA:(VVNG.com)- Two people were transported to a local hospital following a major damage traffic collision on Highway 395.
At about 10:55 AM., on Saturday, June 11th., dispatch received the report of a two-vehicle rollover traffic collision at the intersection of Highway 395 and Three Flags Ct.
San Bernardino County Fire along with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department responded to the collision and located an Infinity Qx60 and a overturned Dodge Ram 250 hauling a trailer blocking the roadway.
According to deputy Getts with the Hesperia station, the truck was heading westbound on Three Flags Ct., waiting in the intersection to make a left-hand turn onto Highway 395. The Infiniti SUV was traveling northbound on Highway 395.
“The initial cause of the accident appears to be that the SUV ran the red light and sideswiped the truck,” stated Deputy Getts.
A family member of the couple inside the Ram told Victor Valley News, they were getting ready to head out of town on a camping trip. “It could have been so much worse and we are just really thankful they are both ok”.
The collision temporarily shut down a stretch of Highway 395 in both directions between Poplar Street and Three Flags Ct. The roadway was reopened at about 12:45 PM.
No other injuries were reported as a result of the collision.
