Rialto Man Loses Control after Passing Traffic in Deadly 10 Freeway Crash in Banning
BANNING, CA (May 23, 2019) – A man was killed following a car accident Thursday morning on 10 Freeway in Banning.
The fatal crash happened just before 7:00 a.m., on the eastbound lanes of the freeway. Dispatchers arrived near Hargrave Street shortly after.
According to preliminary reports, a Nissan Sentra was traveling east at approximately 70 mph. Another vehicle in the area was traveling at 55 mph or less due to the rain and reduced visibility.
As the Nissan moved from the first lane to the second lane to pass the slower moving car, it lost control and spun out. The car ran off the roadway, crashed near the freeway ramp and went over the south embankment where it collided with a tree.
The driver and the sole occupant of the Nissan, a Rialto man, was pronounced dead at the scene. He was wearing a seat belt.
No identifying information is being released at this time. The crash remains under investigation.
Our deepest condolences and sympathies are with the family and friends of the deceased.
