Riverside County Sheriff-Press Release

Reporting Deputy: Sergeant Marcos Acosta

File # MV240360214

Details:

On Monday, February 5, 2024, at 10:35 p.m., deputies assigned to the Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station were dispatched to a major-injury traffic collision at the intersection of Kitching Street and Cactus Avenue. Deputies arrived and located a traffic collision involving three vehicles: a black Lexus, a grey Dodge Ram, and a white Dodge Ram. The driver of the Lexus sustained significant injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene. The driver and passenger of the white Dodge Ram were medically evaluated for non-life-threatening injuries.

The impact from the collision caused the gray Dodge Ram to enter a nearby flood channel. With the assistance of good Samaritans, the passenger of the gray Dodge Ram was rescued from the vehicle and transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. CalFire and the Swift Water Rescue Team began a search for the driver, who was no longer in the vehicle.

The Swift Water Rescue Team located the driver of the gray Dodge Ram in the flood channel at Ramona Expressway and Evans Road in the city of Perris, where they were pronounced deceased. The identities of the decedents are being withheld pending notification to the next of kin. This is an ongoing investigation, and no additional information will be released at this time.

The Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station Traffic Reconstruction Team responded and assumed the investigation. The cause of the collision is still under investigation. It is unknown if alcohol and/or drugs were determined to be a factor in the collision.

Anyone who may have witnessed this collision is encouraged to contact Deputy Kevin Seguin at 951-486-6700 or the Riverside County Sheriff’s Dispatch at 951-776-1099.
