Two pedestrians were injured after they were struck by a vehicle in Victorville on New Year’s Eve. According to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, a man and woman were crossing Mojave Drive in front of the Mojave Market & Liquor Store when they were struck by a Nissan Versa around 10:30 p.m.

The female pedestrian suffered major injuries and was taken to the hospital in critical condition. Both pedestrians were reportedly in stable condition the following day.

The driver of the Nissan also suffered minor injuries and was taken to the hospital. The crash is still under investigation, but witnesses say the pedestrians were having an argument inside the liquor store moments before the accident. The preliminary report shows that the pedestrians ran across the street directly in the vehicle’s path. The driver was unable to stop in time to avoid the collision.

Police closed Mojave Drive from Village Drive to Topango Road for several hours to investigate. During the investigation, two drivers were arrested for driving under the influence when they ran over barricades and damaged police equipment, narrowly missing officers. No one was hurt in those incidents.  

“No one wants to spend New Year’s Eve in the hospital, but unfortunately that ends up being the case for many people involved in accidents during the holidays. We’re praying for the recovery of the driver and pedestrians injured in the collision,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
