A San Bernardino County deputy had to be airlifted following a collision in the Victorville area that left another motorist dead Sunday night.

The crash was reported around 9:18 p.m. on Christmas Day near the intersection of National Trails Highway and Hibiscus Street in the unincorporated Oro Grande community, California Highway Patrol Sgt. John Sauceda said.

Arriving officers located a Sheriff’s Department patrol vehicle blocking the northbound lane and a Chevrolet Impala that went off the road, Sauceda said.

The driver of the Impala was pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators did not provide a name or any other information about the deceased driver.

The unidentified deputy was transported by airship to a trauma center, Sauceda said.

There was no immediate word on the condition of the deputy.

The cause of the crash was under investigation.
