On February 12, 2018, Deputy M. Martinez, from the Victorville Police Department, was on a public service call near the intersection of Hesperia Road and Chalon Road. Martinez was getting in his marked patrol unit when he saw a large SUV quickly approaching from behind. He was able to run to the front of the patrol vehicle and get to the shoulder of the road, just before the passenger side mirror of the 2000 Ford Expedition hit the driver’s side mirror of his marked patrol vehicle.
