Pedestrian Killed in Apple Valley Crash
Last week, a pedestrian was fatally struck in an Apple Valley crash. Authorities have identified the victim as 34-year-old Jessica Iliano Winn. The pedestrian crash occurred on Bear Valley Road just east of Navajo Road.
Police say the woman was struck Monday, Nov. 13, around 9:15 p.m. The driver then left the scene. Firefighters arrived on the scene a few minutes later and found the victim suffering from critical injuries. She was transported to St. Mary’s Medical Center and later died from her injuries.
About two hours after the crash, police received a call from someone who said they believed they struck a dog on Bear Valley Road. Deputies responded to the home, where a white Toyota 4Runner was parked. Police believe the vehicle was involved in the crash. The driver is cooperating with authorities.
Police closed Bear Valley Road from Central Road to Navajo Road for several hours while they investigated. The fatal crash remains under investigation. It is unclear whether the driver has been charged.
“Our hearts go out to the victim’s friends and family. If you are driving and hit something, you should always pull over safely and call the police. Remember that if you hit someone, leaving the scene is considered a hit-and-run, which is a felony,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
