The collision was reported around 07:05 p.m. San Bernardino County Fire and paramedics responded to the scene shortly thereafter. Sims had been traveling southbound on Hesperia Road in her 2008 Honda CRV, when she was hit head-on by a 2010 Toyota FJ Cruiser driven by 62 year old Colton resident Joe Martinez.
