South San Jacinto Avenue, between Commonwealth Avenue and Menlo Avenue, was closed during the investigation.
It is unknown if alcohol and/or drugs were a factor in the collision. Anyone with information regarding this traffic collision is encouraged to call Deputy Cortez of the San Jacinto Sheriff’s Station at 951-654-2702 or dispatch at 951-776-1099.
