Sheriff SUV flips over, crashes into cars, crushes tire shop at high speed in Yermo

An SUV driven by a San Bernardino County sheriff “several times” flipped and crushed the roof of a small auto repair shop Sunday afternoon in Yermo after a witness said he lost control and crashed into several cars at nearly three times the speed limit on a narrow desert road.

Yermo resident Dylan Fernandez says he lives a short distance down the road from the scene, as the property owner is the wife of the owner of the auto shop: El Toro 2 Tire Auto Repair, at 501 West Yermo Road, adjacent to Upton’s Complete Market and across the street from the Welcome Center In Yermo and Thrift-N-More.

Upon hearing about the accident at about 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, Fernandez said he went to investigate and was told by a shop worker across the street that the deputy was driving approximately 140 miles per hour when he made a slight left-hand bend, roughly 770 feet west of the store. cars, and “basically lost control of his own car.”
