Lancaster Station Traffic Detectives investigating circumstances behind fatal traffic collision.

Traffic investigators from the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station are investigating the circumstances of a fatal traffic collision involving two vehicles. The incident took place in the intersection of Avenue J-8 and 10th Street West, in the City of Lancaster.

Preliminary investigation indicates deputies had just initiated a pursuit of a reckless drunk driver in a gray, Ram 1500 pickup, in the area of Avenue K and 12th Street West. The suspect vehicle was able to gain a considerable distance from the deputies while it traveled eastbound on Avenue J-8 towards 10th Street West. The Ram pickup failed to stop for the red traffic signal as it entered the intersection of 10th Street West and collided with a red Dodge Avenger. The driver of the Ram pickup fled on foot before deputies arrived at the collision scene. The driver of the red Dodge Avenger was transported to Antelope Valley Hospital where she, and her unborn child, ultimately succumbed to their injuries. The collision caused a loss of power for the traffic signals at the intersection.

Anyone with information regarding this collision is asked to contact the Traffic Investigators at Lancaster Sheriff Station by calling 661-948-8466.
