Why was Pedestrian Struck on Mojave Drive?

A pedestrian was airlifted with serious injuries after she was struck on Mojave Drive in Victorville Wednesday. According to the Victorville Sheriff’s Station, the woman was walking near Village Elementary School when she suddenly attempted to cross Mojave Drive. She darted into the roadway and was struck by a pickup truck around 3:30 p.m.

Driver Attempted to Avoid Hitting Pedestrian

Police say the pickup truck driver tried to avoid the pedestrian but was unable to swerve out of the way in time. The truck struck the woman in the westbound lane of Mojave Drive. Paramedics transported the woman to Victor Valley Global Medical Center. From there, she was airlifted to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center with major injuries, including head trauma.

The driver remained on the scene after the crash. Police closed westbound Mojave Drive from Ferndale Road to El Evado Road until about 5 p.m. Authorities are still determining what caused the woman struck on Mojave Drive to dart into the roadway.

Similar Incident Occurred 2 Days Before

Just two days prior to this incident, another woman was struck by an SUV in Victorville. Police say that pedestrian also darted into the street, not using a marked crosswalk.

“Our thoughts are with the pedestrian hurt in this incident. We strongly urge pedestrians to be cautious and never attempt to cross the street when it’s unsafe to do so,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
