Morongo Superintendent Vargas Relatively Unscathed In This Morning’s High Speed Accident

Following an initial report that Morongo Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Patricio Vargas was critically injured in a high-speed automobile collision, word has reached the Sentinel that he was shaken up as a result of the mishap but is essentially physically intact in its aftermath.
Vargas was traveling south in his SUV on Utah Trail at approximately 10:25 this morning when he was clipped by another vehicle.
Vargas’s vehicle suffered extensive damage to its front end.
The driver’s side air bag deployed, which based upon photos examined by the Sentinel, likely accounts for Vargas having eluded serious injury or death.
Based upon limited information available to the Sentinel, Vargas’s vehicle went head into the right side of another SUV that was traveling west on Amboy Road.
The Morongo Unified School District headquarters is located at 5715 Utah Trail, which is roughly one mile distant from the scene of the accident.
