Brittney Davis, 20, was killed in a San Bernardino car accident, which police report, involved a hit-and-run driver. According to a news report in The Victorville Daily Press, the hit-and-run car accident occurred on Bear Valley Road in Victorville the night of March 5, 2011.

Hit-And-Run Car Accidents
It is not entirely clear from the report what caused the initial collision between the SUV and the pickup truck. California law requires motorists involved in injury car accidents to stop immediately and remain at the scene, regardless of who is at fault. California Vehicle Code Section 20001 (a) states: “The driver of a vehicle involved in an accident resulting in injury to a person, other than himself or herself, or in the death of a person shall immediately stop the vehicle at the scene of the accident.”
The police are searching for the driver and the white SUV, possibly a Chevy Tahoe or GMC Yukon, involved in this crash. Based on this news report, the driver who caused this horrific collision left the critically injured woman at the scene and drove away. Appalling! I truly hope this suspect is promptly apprehended and brought to justice. If you have any information about this accident, please visit our web site, www.hitandrunreward.com.
