CHP LOOKING FOR HIT-AND-RUN DRIVER AFTER WOMAN HITS MBTA BUS

The California Highway Patrol is searching for the driver involved in a hit-and-run accident last week that injured a Joshua Tree woman. According to a CHP press release, a dark colored Ford Explorer was traveling eastbound on Highway 62 in the left lane about 4:05 p.m. on Friday, November 29, when the driver changed lanes, forcing a gray Chevy Cavalier driven by Gilda Donche off the highway. Donche’s Cavalier struck the rear of an MBTA bus that was stopped on the shoulder at Sunburst Avenue. Donche suffered moderate injuries as a result of the collision and was taken to Desert Hospital in Palm Springs. None of the bus passengers was injured. The driver of the Ford Explorer fled eastbound on the highway toward Twentynine Palms. Witnesses tried to follow, but were unable to keep up with the speeding vehicle. Anyone with information about the driver of the Ford Explorer or the crash should call the CHP at 760-366-3707.
