Victor Valley, Calif. (VVNG) Deputies and First Responders had their work cut out for them Monday night after two rollovers were reported close to each other.

At 10:18 p.m. deputies and medical personnel arrived on scene and located a 2012 Ford Fusion flipped on its roof. Upon searching the vehicle they discovered the person fled on foot into the desert field.

A woman in the struck vehicle, a Chevrolet Spark, was treated by paramedics on scene. Her car was partially lodged over the side of a ditch along the northbound 15 freeway.

The flipped Ford, which came to rest on the southbound lane of Mariposa Road after it departed from the freeway, still had music blaring from the speakers.

Deputies deployed a sheriffs helicopter and a K9 to assist in the search for the suspect, however deputies were unable to locate him.

About half-hour later and a few miles down the road another rollover collision was reported. That accident occurred on the northbound 15 freeway just south of the Nisqualli offramp.

Two people in the rolled car, a white 2001 Toyota Camry, was successfully able to exit their vehicle uninjured, and a 12-year-old passenger in the other involved vehicle, a white 2015 Nissan Altima, was transported with complaints of back injury.

It’s unclear how the first accident occurred, however the second accident was said to be caused by other vehicles that were street racing on the freeway, causing the Camry to lose control and crash into the Nissan.

“Thankfully everyone involved made it out ok, I’m very grateful” commented Bethanee McKay, the mother of the injured 12-year-old girl.

ADELANTO, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Several people were injured in a T-bone crash at the intersection of Sheep Creek near El Mirage Roads Saturday night.

According to the California Highway Patrol incident logs, the traffic accident was reported at about 9:30 PM on August 8th and involved a silver Chevy Tahoe and a silver Ford F-150.

San Bernardino County Firefighters responded and located the Tahoe with major damage to the passenger side and used extrication tools to remove a young child. A female adult sitting in the front passenger was critically injured and a helicopter was requested to airlift her to a trauma center.

A CHP helicopter H-80 landed in the roadway and subsequently flew the injured woman to Loma Linda University Medical Center.

Jessica Christopherson was on her way home from work when she drove up to the accident and heard children inside the SUV screaming and pulled over to call 911. Jessica said the little girl’s leg was pinned but when firefighters removed her from the vehicle she only had some scrapes.

According to Jessica, the dad in the Tahoe was okay and another little girl was shaken up and all three were taken by ground ambulance to LLUMC. The driver of the pickup truck sustained a gash to the back of his head.

Jessica told VVNG she’s almost been involved in several accidents on El Mirage Road due to people speeding and would like to see at least a 3-way stop sign instead of just one.

The California Highway Patrol Victorville Station is handling the investigation into the cause of the crash.
