Victim of Fatal Collision in Helendale Was Not Buckled Up

A Helendale man was killed in a fatal collision Monday morning near Wild Road and Crouch Road. A Ford Explorer was heading south on Wild Road around 7:10 a.m. when the driver made a left turn and crashed into a power pole. The collision overturned the vehicle, ejecting both occupants.

First responders arrived to find 38-year-old Wayne Jaco dead at the scene. The other occupant, a 38-year-old female, suffered major head and chest injuries and was airlifted to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center.

California Highway Patrol (CHP) is investigating the fatal collision. So far, they do not suspect alcohol or drugs to be a factor in the crash. However, neither victim was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision.

“Despite the evidence that seat belts save lives, we continue to see crash victims who are not buckled up,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
