On Monday morning, November 2, a major, single vehicle accident occurred in Jurupa Valley, when a car smashed into a light pole for an unknown reason. The accident proved fatal for the passenger inside car.

At about 9:10 a.m., deputies from the Riverside Sheriff’s Jurupa Valley Station responded to the report of a single-vehicle traffic collision. One or more 911 callers reported the accident had occurred on Rubidoux Blvd. near 34th St., in Jurupa Valley. Callers stated the involved vehicle had struck a light pole at the location.

The damage to the vehicle was so severe, the Fire Department had to extricate the driver from the car. Paramedics and other medical personnel provided medical aid to both the passenger and driver before both were transported to a local hospital for treatment.

The investigation by responding deputies indicated the driver of a Toyota Camry was traveling south on Rubidoux Blvd. when they lost control of the vehicle and struck a light pole at full speed.

According to Bill Davis of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, the front passenger later succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced deceased at the hospital.
