A Hemet police officer reported the accident about 10:20 p.m., after witnessing the wreck while driving on Domenigoni Parkway. The officer advised the vehicle had left the roadway and overturned and requested additional law enforcement resources as well as fire and rescue personnel respond to the scene of the accident.

Arriving officials found a heavily damaged, white pickup truck on its side, near the middle of the dirt median. Paint supplies, buckets, fiberglass ladder, and various personal items were strewn throughout the center divider.

The driver was not injured in the wreck and after being evaluated by AMR medics at the scene, the man declined further medical treatment.

Officers investigating the solo-vehicle crash eventually arrested the driver without incident and he was transported to Hemet Jail.

Hemet PD’s investigation is ongoing and officials have not released any information regarding the crash or man’s arrest.
