On Wednesday, December 6, 2017, at 7:45 a.m., deputies from the Perris Police Department responded to the area of Harley Knox and Patterson, in the city of Perris, regarding a major injury collision in the area.  Deputies arrived on scene within minutes, along with personnel from Cal Fire, and learned a sedan had collided head on with a semi-truck. One of the drivers was trapped inside their vehicle and had to be rescued by Cal Fire personnel. Three people were transported to a local hospital, one with major injuries and two with minor injuries. West bound Harley Knox was shut down for several hours while officers conducted the investigation.

The driver with major injuries is currently in critical condition. At this time, alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the collision. The preliminary investigation revealed a vehicle was driving west on Harley Knox when it crossed into oncoming traffic and struck a semi-truck head on. The vehicle was then struck again by a vehicle travelling west on Harley Knox.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Officer Reid of the Perris Station Traffic Team at (951) 210-1000.
