Road construction at an intersection in Adelanto is preventing drivers from making left turns. Unfortunately, that didn’t stop a driver from ignoring roadwork signs and making a left turn last week, causing an accident.
The driver of a Hyundai took a left turn from southbound U.S. Highway 395 onto Mojave Drive, colliding head-on with a Volkswagen. The driver of the Hyundai and a passenger in the Volkswagen were both taken to the hospital for injuries.
Police say the driver of the Hyundai was cited for the unlawful turn. According to Adelanto’s city spokesperson, lefthand turns onto Mojave Drive are prohibited during construction as a safety precaution. While there is signage prohibiting drivers from making the turn, there are no physical barriers stopping them from doing so.
