On October 16, 2019, at approximately 7:06 pm, deputies from the Hesperia Sheriff’s Station and rescue personnel from the San Bernardino County Fire Department responded to a vehicle versus pedestrian traffic collision near the intersection of Mariposa Road and Live Oak Street in the City of Hesperia.
