William Bopf Dead after Riverside Solo-Car Accident on 91 Freeway
RIVERSIDE, CA (June 16, 2019) — A 59-year-old man identified as William Bopf died in a solo-car crash on early Wednesday, June 12.
The accident happened just after 2 a.m. on the westbound side of the 91 Freeway, just west of Van Buren Boulevard.
According to the California Highway Patrol, Bopf traveled at an unknown speed when his sedan veered into the center divider. After that, it plowed into it and caused a chunk of the barrier to move a foot or two into the carpool lane on the eastbound side. No other cars were involved.
The victim was trapped inside the wreckage. Riverside Fire Department crews extricated him using industrial equipment. Bopf died at the scene of the crash.
Officers shut down three westbound lanes and two eastbound lanes because of the crash. All lanes were re-opened by 6 a.m.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
Our deepest thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of William Bopf.
