Pit bull attacks and seriously injures woman delivering Amazon package in Highland
A driver was seriously injured when she was attacked by a pit bull while trying to deliver an Amazon package to a Highland home on Thursday.
The incident happened shortly after 5 p.m. in the 7300 block of Lillian Lane, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release.
The victim, described as a 52-year-old woman, walked through a gate and entered the yard to deliver a package when the dog attacked.
The pit bull’s owner was eventually able to remove the dog from the delivery driver, but not before sustaining serious upper body injuries, the sheriff’s department said.
The victim was transported to Loma Linda University Medical Center for treatment.
San Bernardino County Animal Control also responded and removed the dog from the home.
The worker’s vehicle and undelivered packages were secured so they could be returned safely to the victim and Amazon, the sheriff’s department said.
The woman was working as an Amazon delivery driver under private contract when she was attacked.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Highland Police Station at 909-425-9793. Those who prefer to remain anonymous can call the We-Tip hotline at 800-782-7463.
