HESPERIA, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A woman was airlifted to a trauma center following a crash near the intersection of US Highway 395 and Main Street Saturday.
The crash involving a black pick-up truck and a red sedan was reported at 2:33 am, on July 7, 2018, just east of the intersection.
According to Victor Valley News member Robert Alan Turner, the red sedan was traveling northbound on US 395 and the truck was traveling eastbound on Main Street. Both vehicles collided at the intersection after the red car allegedly ran the red light, causing the truck to flip, stated Turner.
Emergency personnel arrived on scene and located a female trapped inside the red sedan. San Bernardino County Fire Spokesman Eric Sherwin said it took approximately 25 minutes to extricate the patient from the vehicle.
The woman sustained critical injuries and firefighters requested an airship to transport her to Loma Linda University Medical Center. The male driver of the truck sustained minor cuts and declined medical treatment.
The official cause of the crash remains under investigation by the Hesperia Police Department.
