VICTORVILLE (CBSLA) — A woman was killed Saturday morning after a man fleeing the scene of a fender-bender ran a red light, killing himself and the woman who was driving the car he crashed into.
San Bernardino Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the intersection of Luna Road and Highway 395 where a Mercedes Benz and a Honda Civic crashed just before 7a.m.
Both the male driver of the Honda and the female driver of the Mercedes were pronounced dead at the scene.
A passenger in the Mercedes was airlifted to a nearby trauma center and was reported to be conscious but in critical condition.
The driver of the Honda reportedly rear-ended another car at the intersection of Palmdale Road and Highway 395 before fleeing and running a red light.
The driver of the Honda reportedly sped up when the light turned red and t-boned the Mercedes.
The road was closed for several hours while police investigated.
