San Bernardino man killed while fleeing police

Recently a 23-year old San Bernardino man with an outstanding warrant for a domestic violence conviction crashed his motorcycle while being chased by police.

If you drive a motorcycle in San Bernardino County or any county, I suggest you take extra precautions. Statistics show that four counties in California, including San Bernardino, have a high number of motorcycle deaths and injuries.

San Bernardino car accident kills three

A recent head-on collision in Adelanto resulted in the death of three people.

The SUV also had a 20-year old passenger - both were ejected from the vehicle and suffered fatal injuries.

Interstate 15 and safe driving

Recently the Automobile Club of Southern California published an article in their member magazine, Westways.

Plane crash in Joshua Tree National Park

Another hit-and-run accident

A couple of weeks ago two brothers were riding together on a bicycle when they were hit by a hit-and-run driver. One of the brother, 19 years old, died at the scene and the other brother, 15 years old , was critically hurt; he is still in the hospital - in a medically induced coma. No one can understand how a driver could just leave two young people on the ground. Friends held a car wash to collect donations to pay for a memorial service.
