Utility Pole Crash Kills Victorville Man

A driver died after crashing into a utility pole in Phelan Saturday morning. The accident occurred around 9:30 a.m. on Baldy Mesa Road near Smoke Tree Road. Police say 59-year-old Robert T. Hanson of Victorville was driving south on Baldy Mesa Road when he crashed his silver Dodge Ram into a utility pole, then into a chain-link fence surrounding a property.

A witness administered CPR on the driver until firefighters arrived. Firefighters then transported Hanson to Desert Valley Hospital, where he died at 10:34 a.m.

What Caused Phelan Utility Pole Crash?

Police say Hanson drifted off the road and into the dirt shoulder, which led to the crash. However, it is unclear what caused him to veer off the roadway. The Victorville California Highway Patrol (CHP) is investigating the utility pole crash.
