One person was injured in a rear-end collision in Victorville in an early morning crash last month. The crash occurred around 12:43 a.m. on Hesperia Road near Green Tree Boulevard.

The driver of a Honda Accord traveling north on Hesperia Road crashed into the back of a Toyota Camry. According to the Honda driver, the road was dark and he was unable to see the Toyota in front of him.

A passenger in the Honda was taken to the hospital for moderate injuries. The driver was cited for driving without a license and driving without insurance. The crash shut down Hesperia Road in both directions while police investigated the rear-end collision.

Driving at night can be difficult, especially on dark desert roads where street lights are sparse.

Here are 5 tips for safely navigating the road at night:

  1. Schedule regular vision check-ups. Difficulty seeing in the dark is a common problem, even for drivers who have good vision during the day. Make sure you have your vision checked annually. If you are prescribed glasses for driving at night, be sure to wear them.
  2. Keep your headlights clean and bright. Cloudy or dim headlights will make it harder for you to see the road and your surroundings.
  3. Make sure your windshield is clean. A dirty windshield will also reduce visibility.
  4. Minimize light inside your vehicle. Keep the interior lights off and dim your dash lights to increase visibility.
  5. Avert your eyes from the headlights from oncoming vehicles. The glare from these will make it harder for you to see. Instead keep your eyes on the roadway in front of you.

“Nighttime driving is tricky, especially on roads that are poorly lit. Be extra cautious if you are behind the wheel after dark,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
