On June 30, 2019, at 4:19 PM, Riverside Sheriff’s Department-Moreno Valley Station’s Traffic Team responded to a major single vehicle traffic collision in the area of Perris Boulevard and San Michele Road, city of Moreno Valley. Deputies from the Riverside Sheriff’s Department, Moreno Valley Station along with personnel from the Moreno Valley Fire and paramedics arrived within minutes and discovered a single vehicle roll-over collision. The driver, Jack Carachure, was ejected and transported to a local hospital with various injuries. The two passengers were also treated at the scene and transported to a local hospital for minor injuries. It does not appear impairment from the use of drugs or alcohol contributed to this collision. However, members of the Traffic Team captured images on the City of Moreno Valley’s City-Wide cameras of Carachure street racing with a possible white, Dodge Charger, northbound on Perris Boulevard prior to the collision. Due to Carachure’s injuries, an Illegal Street Racing Vehicle Code violation will be filed out of custody with the Riverside District Attorney’s Office.
