On December 20, 2020, about 2:40 AM, deputies from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, Moreno Valley Station, responded to the report of a major injury traffic collision on Gilman Springs Road, south of Alessandro Boulevard, in the city of Moreno Valley.

The driver suffered major injuries and was transported to a local area hospital where he was listed to be in critical condition.

The identity of the driver will not be released pending further investigation.  Alcohol and or drugs were considered to be a suspected factor in the collision.
