1 Dead in Riverside Racing Crash on Magnolia Avenue and Jones Avenue
RIVERSIDE, CA (August 17, 2021) – Sunday night, a 17-year-old girl died in a hit-and-run accident on Magnolia Avenue and Jones Avenue.
The incident occurred at around 10:45 p.m. near Magnolia Avenue and Jones Avenue.
Sgt. Ryan Taack revealed that the Perris girl rode a westbound 2003 Ford Mustang on Magnolia Avenue. Then, she and a 2011 Chevrolet Camaro, allegedly started an illegal street race.
“The Camaro appears to have turned in front of the Mustang, causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle,” Taack stated. “The Mustang continued off of the roadway and collided with a tree.”
Taack added that the Camaro driver “briefly stopped after the collision, but fled the scene moments later.”
When the paramedics arrived, they aided the victim and her 17-year-old female passenger. Moreover, they transported both to a hospital. However, the driver died and her friend received treatment for moderate injuries.
The authorities urged anyone with information about the crash or the Camaro driver to call the police Traffic Bureau at 951-826-8723.
