San Bernardino, CA: Woman Killed in Fatal Two-Vehicle Collision
San Bernardino, California (February 28, 2018): The California Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal motor vehicle crash in San Bernadino on Sunday afternoon, February 24, 2018, that tragically took the life of a 60-year-old woman. Information about the incident remains limited while the investigation is active and ongoing.
Officials believe the accident happened just before 4:30 p.m. when a 2014 Kia traveling west on East Lynwood Drive was struck by a 2002 Chevrolet traveling on Del Rosa Avenue North. Authorities believe the Chevrolet driver may have run a red traffic light at the intersection.
The driver of the Kia, local San Bernardino resident, Desiree Varner, was pronounced dead at St. Bernardino Medical Center, where she had been taken after the accident.
