MORE ON A FATAL CRASH AFTER 130-MPH PURSUIT MONDAY NIGHT

More information today on a fatal crash on the Morongo Grade Monday night. At about 9:20 p.m., the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Yucca Valley Station attempted to stop a 1994 Toyota Camry for reckless driving in Yucca Valley, near Palm Avenue and Highway 62. The vehicle, occupied by a 55-year old female driver, failed to yield and a pursuit started through areas of western Yucca Valley, south of the highway. The woman drove at speeds up to 70 miles per hour through residential areas and blew through several stop signs. She eventually got on the highway again at Kickapoo Trail, heading west, with speeds clocked up to 130 miles per hour. Porter said as she reached the first curve at the top of the Morongo Grade, about a mile west of Hess Blvd. in Morongo Valley, she lost control of her car, hit the center divider, overturned, was ejected from the vehicle and killed on impact. The woman was the sole occupant of the car. The pursuing deputies had backed off the pursuit prior to the woman entering the grade and so did not witness the crash, but came upon it several seconds after it occurred. The name of the driver will be released following notification of next of kin. A preliminary investigation determined the woman was wanted on a warrant. Deputies from the Major Accident Investigation Team from Victorville, Hesperia, and Barstow are investigating the crash and pursuit.
