A motorcyclist was injured in a crash in Victorville last month after he tried to swerve around a wrong-way driver. The crash happened around 7:10 p.m. near the intersection of Bear Valley Road and 7th Street.

Police arrived to find the motorcyclist down and suffering from minor injuries. The wrong-way driver fled the scene after hitting the motorcyclist. According to a witness, the motorcyclist was heading west on Bear Valley Road when he swerved to avoid an eastbound driver traveling in the westbound lanes.

The motorcyclist was transported to Desert Valley Medical Center for his minor injuries. He was wearing protective gear at the time of the accident, which might have helped prevent him from sustaining more serious injuries. Authorities have not reported whether they have located the wrong-way driver.

“Yet again we’re dealing with a driver who did not have the decency to stop and make sure his or her victim was okay before taking off. We’re just glad to hear this motorcyclist was wearing the appropriate gear, which likely saved him from being seriously hurt,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
