NEWBERRY SPRINGS: Christopher Hill, 42, Killed in Polaris Razor Utility Vehicle Crash
NEWBERRY SPRINGS, California (April 7, 2016) — Christopher Hill, 42, of National City died in a crash Sunday driving his 2016 Polaris Razor Utility Vehicle after it overturned on eastbound Ord Mountain Road, according to the Desert Dispatch.
The crash took place on Sunday just before 12 p.m. Police say Hill and a second person were traveling in the Polaris off-road vehicle when it came upon a crested rise in the roadway and went airborne. The vehicle went down in a dirt ravine, but went airborne a second time before it overturned and landed on its roof at the bottom of a ravine.
It also struck a 2014 Polaris Razor utility Vehicle occupied by two people, but that vehicle only suffered minor damage and neither person was hurt. Hill died of his injuries at the scene of the crash, but his 40-year-old female passenger was airlifted to Loma Linda University Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries. All drivers and passengers in the two vehicles were wearing safety helmets and harnesses at the time of the crash.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department is heading up the investigation into the crash.
