According to the San Bernardino County Coroner's office, a 33-year old woman died the other day after she ran a stop sign in Lucerne Valley.
A big-rig driver had no chance to stop and broadsided her vehicle. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Many drivers in California make what is called a "rolling stop". The driver slows down, but doesn't come to a complete stop. Not making any stop at all has proven fatal in this accident.
California Vehicle Code 22450(a) states, "The driver of any vehicle approaching a stop sign at the entrance to, or within, an intersection, or railroad grade crossing shall stop at a limit line, if marked, otherwise before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection.
