Written Date: August 7, 2019 Time: 3:25 pm

On Wednesday, August 7, 2019, deputies from the Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Station responded to a report of a major injury traffic collision on Collier Ave north of Chaney St., Lake Elsinore. Upon arrival, deputies learned a dark colored GMC Terrain was traveling southbound on Collier Ave, crossed over the double yellow lane lines and collided, head-on, with a black Ford Fusion traveling north bound.   The occupants from both vehicles were transported to Inland Valley Medical Center, where they received treatment for injuries.

The Lake Elsinore Traffic Team is conducting a full investigation into the cause of the collision.  It is not believed that alcohol/drugs will be a factor in this collision.  Both lanes of Collier Ave were closed for several hours during the investigation.

This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with further information about the collision is encouraged to contact Deputy Grisso at the Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Station Department, (951) 245-3300.
