A woman accused of driving under the influence crashed into a tractor-trailer while reportedly fleeing the scene of a hit-and-run here early Monday morning.
Deputies with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Victorville Station responded to the intersection of Bear Valley and Mariposa roads at approximately 12:37 a.m. for a collision involving a Honda Accord and tractor-trailer.
