Woman Hit by Truck Killed in Victorville on Hesperia RoadWoman Dies at Desert Valley Hospital

VICTORVILLE  (June 19, 2017)- According to the Press-Enterprise, a deadly collision led to the death of a pedestrian woman Friday evening at the cross streets of Hesperia and Comanche roads.

Authorities were notified of the collision at precisely 11:23 p.m. when an unidentified woman was struck by the driver of a truck driven by Joseph Covarubias, 42, of Victorville.

The victim was rushed to Desert Valley Hospital in serious condition where she was sadly pronounced dead a short while after being admitted to the hospital.

According to the Press-Enterprise, the victim will be publicly identified once her relatives are informed of her passing.

Authorities confirmed Covarubias was uninjured and did not seek any medical treatment at the scene.

Hesperia Road remained completely closed off for approximately four hours until around 4:00 a.m.

Victorville PD will handle the investigation and have not provided any information regarding whether drugs or alcohol played a role.

Based on this news report, there are still several unanswered questions here. Was the driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Was the driver negligent in any other way? Was the victim within the means of a marked crosswalk prior to being struck? Victorville PD will analyze these and other factors in order to determine precisely what occurred here and why.

When there is negligence on the part of a driver where another motorist has been fatally injured, a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault driver may be sought by the family of the victim allowing them to exercise to the right to pursue compensation for damages including funeral expenses, loss of companionship, and loss of consortium.
