Traffic Snarled in Victorville Due to Red Light Runner

A red light runner caused a crash on Palmdale Road in Victorville Thursday afternoon. The two-vehicle crash happened just after 1 p.m. at the intersection of Palmdale Road and Mariposa Road.

Authorities say a sedan was traveling east on Palmdale Road when the driver ran a red light and crashed into a Dodge pickup truck. The pickup truck was attempting to get onto the I-15 onramp when it was broadsided at the intersection.

No one reported any injuries from the collision. Drivers experienced significant traffic delays on Palmdale Road, Mariposa Road and 7th Street while the scene was being cleared.

Red light runners cause thousands of crashes each year. According to the Institute for Highway Safety, 22% of crashes are caused by someone running a red light or other traffic sign.

“Traffic signals are there for a reason. Getting to your destination a few minutes earlier is not worth risking a dangerous collision,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
