SAN JACINTO, CA (May 6, 2021) – Wednesday afternoon, a person died in a crash on Bridge Street and Gilman Springs Road.
The authorities received a report of the crash between a big rig and a car at 2:55 p.m. Moreover, CHP confirmed that the incident happened on Bridge Street and Gilman Springs Road near Mystic Lake.
According to the CHP officials, the tractor-trailer and car collided in the northbound lanes.
Responders pulled the driver of the car from the wreckage in grave condition. However, the driver succumbed to his injuries at the scene.
Meanwhile, the truck driver sustained minor injuries. Then, responders took the big rig driver to Riverside University Medical Center in Moreno Valley for treatment.
