VICTORVILLE, Calif. — Authorities are searching for a suspected hit-and-run driver who killed three children and critically injured a fourth as they walked along a Southern California desert highway.

The four young girls — two of them in wheelchairs, including the lone survivor of the collision — were struck shortly before 10:30 p.m. Saturday as they walked on Camp Rock Road and were struck by a white Chevrolet Silverado that drifted onto the shoulder of the road and struck them from behind, the California Highway Patrol said.

The crash occurred on a stretch of road in the Mojave Desert community in San Bernardino County.

Three of the girls — Willow Sanchez, 11; Daytona Bronas, 12; and Sandra Mizer, 13 — died at the scene. The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Coroner’s Division released their names Monday morning.
