PALMDALE – A 60-year-old Palmdale man was killed Sunday after his car was broadsided by an SUV in a Palmdale intersection.
Danny Hardy Wilson died at the scene of the collision, which occurred around 4:55 p.m. Sunday (Aug. 4) in the intersection of Bolz Ranch Road and Cricket Lane, authorities said.
Wilson was driving a 2003 Honda Accord northbound on Cricket Lane. He stopped for a stop sign, and then started to turn westbound onto Bolz Ranch Road, apparently pulling into the path of a 2007 Ford Edge that was traveling eastbound on Bolz Ranch Road, according to Deputy J. Heald of the Palmdale Sheriff Station.
The Ford crashed into the driver’s side of the Honda, killing Wilson and injuring his passenger. The 54-year-old passenger suffered neck and chest injuries and was transported to Antelope Valley Hospital for treatment, Heald stated.
The Ford’s driver – 20-year-old Megan Perkins of Palmdale – sustained chest and hip injuries and was transported to Palmdale Regional Medical Center for treatment, Heald stated.
Bolz Ranch Road, between Club Rancho Drive and Sawgrass Drive, was closed for about five hours as authorities investigated the crash. The incident remains under investigation by the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station traffic detail.
