Deadly Pedestrian Accident on Bear Valley Road in Apple Valley
APPLE VALLEY, CA (April 6, 2021) – A man was killed in a pedestrian accident on Bear Valley Road in Apple Valley Easter Sunday evening.
The accident happened around 8:40 p.m. on April 4 near Maumee Road. A witness told authorities the victim was a homeless man that was hanging around outside of the High Desert liquor store and was under the influence of alcohol. He was accompanied by a small white fluffy dog that looked like a poodle.
A good Samaritan was attempting to give the man food and a leash for his dog when the pedestrian suddenly started to walk into the roadway as his dog followed behind. A dark-colored 2015 Chevrolet Cruze traveling westbound was unable to stop in time and struck the pedestrian.
The impact caused the pedestrian to crash through the front windshield, leaving his body partially inside of the vehicle. Firefighters from the Apple Valley Fire Protection District responded and pronounced the victim dead at the scene.
The witness said the man’s dog was also hit but ran off towards a large desert area.
The male driver of the Chevrolet remained at the scene and cooperated with authorities.
Authorities asked anyone with further information to contact Deputy Cullum or Deputy Sahagun at 760-240-7400.
We extend our deepest condolences to the grieving family and friends of the victim.
