A 5-year-old dies in a side impact crash in Hesperia

A 5-year-old Hesperia girl, who'd been critically injured in a car accident on Thursday evening, Oct. 5, passed away the following Saturday.

The young girl had been riding as a passenger in her mother's Scion TC as she drove along Escondido Avenue. It's as she approached the roadway's intersection with Hollister Street that a Ford Focus ran into the side of her vehicle.

Photographs from the crash scene show significant impact to the passenger's side of the two-door sedan. Several of the car's airbags appear to have activated as well.

First responders arriving at the crash scene found the girl unconscious. They reportedly had to perform CPR on her as they were en route to Desert Valley Hospital. Once she arrived there, she was flown by helicopter to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center. It's there that she ultimately passed away.

The girl's mother and a second child in the car also suffered injuries, although they were far less severe than the 5-year-old girl's. Both of the kids were reportedly properly secured in their car seats at the time of the crash. The Focus' driver suffered only minor injuries in the crash. Each of them was transported to Desert Valley Hospital for treatment.

A Hesperia police spokesperson noted that all parties have been cooperative as they continue investigating the crash. It's not believed that the Focus' driver was under the influence of either drugs or alcohol at the time of the accident.

This is reportedly not the first accident to occur along this same stretch of roadway. Instead, area residents have noted that accidents happen all of the time in the same area.

If your loved one has lost his or her life in a car crash, then a San Bernardino motor vehicle accident attorney may advise you of your right to sue for funeral costs and other related expenses.
