Afternoon 2-Vehicle Wreck on 15 Freeway in Murrieta Kills 1 and Injures 2 Others

 
MURRIETA, CA (December 19, 2018) – An 80-year-old Temecula man was killed following a two-vehicle crash Wednesday afternoon in Murrieta, the California Highway Patrol reported.
 
The fatal crash happened around 1:55 p.m. on southbound 15 Freeway at Murrieta Springs Road, just near 215 Freeway.
 
According to the CHP, the man was driving a 1999 Lincoln Town car southbound at about 65 mph, when a 2003 Dodge Ram van abruptly slowed as traffic ahead of him came to a stop.
 
The Lincoln driver applied his brakes but lost control, spinning out in lanes. The rear of the van struck the driver’s side of the Lincoln, causing the car to careen into the center median, while the van was pushed onto the shoulder of the freeway.
 
The driver of the Lincoln suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. His name has not yet been released pending next of kin notification.
 
The driver of the van, a 61-year-old man, and his 58-year- old female passenger, both are Downey residents, suffered minor injuries and transported to Inland Valley Medical Center in Wildomar.
 
A dog was found dead in the van and Animal Control was requested to assist.
 
The southbound lanes of 15 Freeway was partially shut down for several hours for the on-scene investigation.


We hope the family and friends of the victim are surrounded by steadfast and comforting support as they grieve for the loss of their loved one.
