1 Dead, 3 Injured In Mojave Desert Crash

LAKE LOS ANGELES (AP) — One person is dead and three others have been injured in a violent Mojave Desert crash.

The California Highway patrol says two vehicles collided at about 7:11 a.m. Tuesday on Palmdale Boulevard in Lake Los Angeles, an unincorporated high desert community about 17 miles east of Palmdale.

Los Angeles County fire Inspector Don Kunitomi says two critically injured people trapped in wreckage were airlifted to a hospital.

      I agree with Mark regarding the comments made by Fred Mertz and with Tracy’s feelings concerning the loss and praying for the victim’s family. Although, I did not witness or see the actual accident, I was caught in the resulting traffic jam on Palmdale Blvd as it is the major route to where I work. Fortunately I was able to take a side street which allowed me to take an alternate route In the two years that, I have lived in Palmdale and traveled that section of Palmdale Blvd I have witnessed many accidents and although some of them were probably the result of human error I strongly believe that many are a direct result of the poor maintenance and the design of the that section of Palmdale Blvd. (road width, surface conditions, lighting and soft shoulder). How many accidents and loss of lives will it take for our elected officials to do something to correct the problem
