On Wednesday, June 24, 2020, about 8:34 AM, deputies responded to a report of a traffic collision at River Road cross of Baron Road, in the city of Eastvale.
Upon arrival, deputies located an injury traffic collision involving two vehicles. A male adult driver was transported by American Medical Response to a local hospital for treatment. On the way to the hospital the male adult succumbed from his injuries. The driver of the other vehicle cooperated with the investigation and was released from the scene with minor injuries.
The preliminary investigation revealed one of the vehicles was traveling eastbound on Baron Road cross of River Road. The driver attempted to make a northbound turn onto River Road from a southbound only turning lane. The vehicle was struck by the second vehicle that was traveling southbound on River Road.
The Jurupa Valley Traffic Reconstruction Team responded to the location and assumed the investigation. River Road was closed in both directions while deputies processed the scene. At this time it does not appear that drugs or alcohol were a factor in this traffic collision.
