At around 7:40 p.m. on Sunday, April 24, one person was killed and another critically injured in a car accident in Victorville. The crash occurred near the intersection of Interstate 15 and D Street, the impact leaving one of the vehicles upside down. Authorities pronounced one of the motorists dead at the scene, while the other was transported to a local hospital, explains a California injury attorney.
In 2009, the most recent year for which the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has released accident statistics, there were more than 5.5 million police-reported crashes in the United States, 28 percent of which resulted in injury and less than 1 percent in death. That year, a total of 350 people where killed or injured in traffic accidents in Victorville, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety.
