Jeffrey Woods Dead in San Jacinto Crash
SAN JACINTO, CA (June 3, 2019) — A motorcyclist died after a collision with a vehicle on San Jacinto Avenue on early Friday evening, May 31.
Riverside County Sheriff-Coroner officials identified 27-year-old Jeffrey Woods, of San Jacinto, as the deceased motorcyclist.
According to Riverside Sheriff’s Sgt. Bryan De Loss, witness statements and physical evidence at the area show that the motorcyclist traveled northbound on San Jacinto Avenue at a high rate of speed. At the same time, the driver of a Toyota traveled southbound on San Jacinto Avenue. After that, the driver entered the left turn lane and proceeded to turn left into the driveway found on the east side of San Jacinto Avenue.
As the Toyota moved across the northbound lanes of San Jacinto Avenue, the motorcycle crashed broadside with the vehicle.
The force of the incident sent the Toyota spinning up and over a nearby curb. It also sent the rider over his handlebars. He landed at approximately 50-75 feet further up the roadway, where he died.
Fire and rescue personnel pronounced Woods dead immediately upon their arrival at the scene of the crash at 5:22 p.m.
