Pickup hits semi near Hemet, kills Bay Area man


A 52-year-old man died early Monday, Sept. 20, when the pickup he was driving drifted into oncoming traffic near Hemet and collided with a semi truck, the California Highway Patrol said.

The crash was reported at 6:45 a.m. on Warren Road, a heavily traveled highway with one lane in each direction separated by a double yellow line.

A white Chevrolet Silverado was headed north on Warren south of Esplanade Avenue when it crossed the line, said Officer Matt Napier, a CHP spokesman. The driver of the semi swerved, but the left front of the pickup struck the left front of the semi, Napier said.

Both vehicles were traveling at about the posted 55 mph speed limit, Napier said.
