Reporting Deputy: Sergeant Patrick Lynch
File # I230950108
On April 5, 2023, at 7:41 PM, deputies responded to the intersection of San Jacinto Avenue and Esplanade Avenue, in the city of San Jacinto, regarding a major-injury traffic collision, involving a pedestrian. Deputies arrived and located a male subject down in the roadway, with severe injuries. Cal-Fire responded, and the subject was transported to a local area hospital. The subject later died due to injuries sustained from the collision.
The San Jacinto Sheriff’s Station Traffic Collision Reconstruction Team responded to the scene and assumed the investigation. Preliminary investigation revealed the male ran across San Jacinto Ave when he was struck by two separate vehicles. Both vehicles stopped and the drivers cooperated with the investigation. Alcohol and drugs do not appear to be a factor in this collision.
The collision investigation required the temporary closure of San Jacinto Avenue, north of Esplanade Avenue. Anyone with information related this incident is encouraged to contact Deputy Bunn at the San Jacinto Sheriff’s Station at 951–766–2366 or Riverside County Sheriff’s Dispatch at 951–776–1099.
