Fatal Pedestrian Accident Shuts Down Oakwood Avenue in Hesperia

A woman was killed in a pedestrian accident in Hesperia Saturday night. Police say 63-year-old Victoria Orrantia of Victorville was walking on Oakwood Avenue south of Sycamore Street when she was hit by a Saturn sedan.

Orrantia was taken to Desert Valley Hospital, where she died from her injuries at 11:42 p.m. The Saturn driver remained at the scene to cooperate with the investigation. Police closed Oakwood Avenue between Deodar Street and Sycamore Street for a few hours to investigate.

It is not clear whether alcohol or drugs contributed to the crash. However, the area where the crash occurred is poorly lit, making for very dark streets after sundown. Add to that the high speed limit and you have a recipe for a pedestrian accident.

“Unfortunately, streets like this simply aren’t designed with pedestrians in mind. We’re very sorry for the family who lost their loved one in this incident,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
