Another pedestrian has been killed while on a roadway. This time it was a 31-year old woman who was hit by a sheriff's patrol car in the community of Joshua Tree.
The Sherriff's department arrested four individuals in three separate traffic accidents the weekend of March 13, 2010 - all involving alcohol or drugs. One is an active-duty Marine. He was arrested on suspicion of DUI after hitting two parked vehicles early Saturday morning. After taking several field sobriety tests, he was arrested and booked in the Morongo Basin jail - released later that day.
