Victorville, CA (August 19, 2020) – A woman died due to life-threatening injuries she sustained during a car accident at the intersection of Llanada Avenue and Village Drive on the morning of Monday, August 17th.

The coroner from San Bernardino County has identified the deceased victim as 50-year-old Adelanto resident, Maria Lourdes Mora.

The accident took place at approximately 11:30 a.m. when Mora was heading eastbound along Village Drive in her silver 2007 Honda Civic at the precise moment that a grey older model Honda was traveling westbound on the same road.

Local law enforcement officers have been able to determine that the Honda collided with Mora’s car while it was in the intersection. One of the vehicles then crashed into a municipal truck from the city of Victorville that was also driving eastbound along Village Drive.

Mora’s vehicle became partly wedged on a curb with a considerable amount of damage sustained upon impact. The older Honda eventually came to a stop in the middle of the roadway after the accident.

Emergency medical personnel transported Mora to Victor Valley Global Medical Center. She was pronounced dead a short while later.  

A local fire and rescue squad successfully extricated the male driver after he became ensnared in the wreckage of the older Honda. He was then airlifted to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center for emergency treatment of undefined injuries.

In the meantime, officials on the scene verified reports that the two Victorville city employees in the truck were not harmed during the accident. 

This accident is currently under investigation by local law enforcement.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Mrs. Maria Lourdes Mora, at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and his family in hopes of a full recovery.
