On May 24, 2019, at 8:36 PM, La Quinta officers responded to Fred Warning Drive and Adams Street, in the city of La Quinta, regarding a three vehicle, non-injury traffic collision.  It was determined Victor Juncal, 52-years-old of Palm Desert, was driving a white 2002 Ford Explorer, eastbound on Fred Waring Drive when he failed to stop at the red light, colliding with two vehicles stopped at the intersection of Adams Street.
