Deputy, 2 others hospitalized after Moreno Valley crash

MORENO VALLEY — California Highway Patrol is investigating an injury traffic collision after an on-duty Riverside County sheriff’s deputy was involved in a three-vehicle crash in Moreno Valley early Tuesday morning, March 10. Rain-slicked roads may have been a contributing factor in the accident.

Yesterday’s collision, which sent the deputy and two other drivers to the hospital, happened in the area of Perris Blvd. and Ironwood Ave.

CHP, Cal Fire, AMR and deputies from the Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station were first alerted to yesterday morning’s crash around 1:40 a.m., after receiving reports of a three-vehicle traffic collision involving a patrol vehicle.

When officials arrived they found three wrecked vehicles, including a marked, black and white patrol cruiser that sustained major front-end damage. Two other heavily-damaged vehicles; which were described as a yellow and black Smart car and white pickup truck, were nearby. Vehicle parts and debris were scattered across the roadway and several lanes were blocked and impassable.

The three drivers and sole occupants of the involved vehicles were all transported to area hospitals with injuries a Riverside County Sheriff’s representative later described as non-life-threatening.

CHP is investigating the cause of the collision and no further information has been released.
