On July 13, 2019 at 4:11 a.m., Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Deputies responded to a report of a single vehicle collision that occurred at Cesar Chavez Street and Fourth Street in the city of Coachella. It was determined that a 17-year-old Hispanic female, resident of Indio, was driving northbound on Cesar Chavez and attempted to turn into a business parking lot. The juvenile was unable to negotiate the turn and the vehicle struck the business. The juvenile was medically treated at the scene with no apparent injury. No other injuries were reported.
