No injuries reported after 2-vehicle wreck sends truck soaring off freeway
California Highway Patrol is investigating the cause of a two-vehicle, rollover traffic accident that happened Monday afternoon, Sept. 25, northwest of Moreno Valley and southeast of Riverside.
The accident sent a landscaping truck crashing through a guard rail and fence, where it soared off the southbound 215/eastbound 60 Freeway onto Sycamore Canyon Boulevard; which runs adjacent to the freeway. The non-injury accident happened just before Central Avenue.
Law enforcement officials and medical personnel were dispatched to the scene of the rollover accident shortly before 1:30 p.m.
When officials arrived at the scene, they found an Isuzu utility truck on its passenger side on Sycamore Canyon Blvd. and a newer Toyota Corolla with heavy rear-end damage along the right side of the freeway.
Officials quickly determined there were no injuries related to the crash.
Debris from the back of the Isuzu was strewn across Sycamore Canyon Blvd, forcing CHP officials to call for the temporary closure of Sycamore Canyon Blvd. in both directions during their investigation.
The freeway remained open; however, there were some delays reported due to other motorists slowing to view the scene of the accident.
