Three people were injured in a Hesperia collision last Thursday morning. Police say a 65-year-old Hesperia woman was driving a Lincoln Town Car westbound on Sycamore Street when she ran a stop sign and was broadsided by a Toyota Tundra traveling north on Oakwood Avenue.

The Hesperia collision, which happened around 10:20 a.m., knocked the Lincoln through a fence and into the yard of a vacant home. The Lincoln driver had to be extricated from the car. She was then taken by ground to Desert Valley and later airlifted to Loma Linda University Medical Center for serious injuries. The Toyota driver and his passenger were treated for minor injuries at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center.

According to a study by the U.S. Department of Transportation, 9,951 vehicles were involved in fatal accidents at traffic signals in 1999 and 2000. In the same time frame, 13,627 vehicles were involved in fatal crashes at stop signs. Fatal crashes caused by failure to yield were 2.6 times higher at stop signs than at traffic lights, and fatal crashes due to failure to obey are 1.5 times higher at stops signs.

“Stops signs are there for a reason. Until drivers take them seriously, people will continue to get hurt,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
