A Hesperia woman has been arrested following a hit-and-run that severely damaged two vehicles and left two people injured.
Deputies with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department responded to a report of hit-and run-collision at the intersection of Bear Valley and Jacaranda roads around 6:50 p.m. Wednesday night.
Upon arriving, they found a red Ford Explorer that had “sustained major damage” and two passengers, a 62-year-old woman and a 19-year-old woman, who had to be transported to a local hospital.
Authorities were able to track down the other vehicle, a white Kia Optima driven by Casey Tuff, 32, of Hesperia, around the intersection of Ridgecrest and Francesca roads.
Officials said Tuff showed “obvious signs of being under the influence of alcohol and was uncooperative when deputies attempted a field sobriety test”.
She was arrested and faces charges of felony DUI causing bodily injury, felony DUI with a blood alcohol level over .08%, and hit-and-run with injuries.
Anyone with more information regarding this investigation is urged to contact Deputy Wolff with the SBCSD Victorville Police Department at 760-241-2911 or submit an anonymous tip online.
