Driver Speeding, Killed in Victorville Single-Vehicle Crash

A driver was killed in a single-vehicle crash on Palmdale Road in Victorville this month. The driver, 56-year-old Ramon Valadez of Chula Vista, was heading east on Palmdale Road when he lost control and crashed into a street light at the intersection of Palmdale and Delgado. The pole was knocked over and crashed onto Valadez’s vehicle.

Valadez was taken to Victor Valley Global Medical Center, where he succumbed to his injuries at 5:42 p.m. Authorities say alcohol and drugs do not appear to be factors in the single-vehicle crash, but speed was likely a contributor.

Speed is frequently found to be a factor in fatal crashes. In 2014, speeding was involved in 28% of fatal crashes.

“We’re saddened to hear of another fatal accident in our community. Drivers need to take speed limits seriously and focus their full attention on the road,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
