Two people were hospitalized following a collision between a quad and a vehicle in Adelanto on Tuesday afternoon, February 28, 2023.
According to the Victor Valley Sheriff’s Station, the crash occurred at 12:58 p.m. near Joshua Street and Aster Road, near Adelanto High School.
An adult man was reportedly driving a white Toyota Camry at about 30 mph north on Aster Road while a 15-year-old male juvenile was traveling west on Joshua Street on a quad at an unspecified speed.
Both drivers collided with each other after the juvenile ran the stop sign. He was ejected from his Quad and landed on the road’s shoulder. He was reportedly wearing a helmet.
The young man sustained life-threatening injuries and was airlifted to a trauma center, while the Camry driver was taken via ambulance to a nearby hospital. No updates on their current conditions and identities were released.
Anybody with information is urged to call the authorities as the investigation continues.
