1 Injured in Victorville Pedestrian Accident
A man suffered minor injuries in a Victorville pedestrian accident Friday afternoon. The crash occurred around 3:45 p.m. at Village Drive and Tawney Ridge Lane. Police say a Toyota Prius was traveling south on Village Drive when it struck the pedestrian in the intersection.
According to police, the pedestrian ran out in front of the vehicle. Witnesses say the crash caused the man to become airborne. He then landed on the vehicle, shattering its windshield.
First responders treated the man on scene, then transported him to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries. Police closed down that area of Village Drive for a brief period while they investigated. The Prius driver remained on scene and spoke with authorities. He was allowed to leave and it does not appear that any charges have been filed.
