CRESTLINE: Man, 77, Woman, 22, Killed in Head-on Crash on Highway 18
CRESTLINE, California (September 30, 2014) – Two people were killed and a 3-year-old child was injured in a head-on car accident Monday on Highway 18, just below Crestline, according to a report by the Inland News Today.
Anna Trucks-Fivgas, 22, of Running Springs and Walter Kovacs, 77, of Lake Arrowhead were identified as the two adults killed in the crash between two SUVs on the highway. Paramedics responded to the collision and transported a 3-year-old girl who was injured to Children’s Hospital of Loma Linda.
Police spent roughly five hours investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash in an effort to determine liability. A report assigning liability for the crash will be issued in the coming weeks and will be available to the families of the two victims.
“My condolences go out to the families of these two people as they cope with their sudden loss,” said Attorney James Johnson.
