Riverside County, CA: Four Injured After Two-Vehicle Crash in Menifee
Riverside County, California (March 15, 2018): The California Highway Patrol confirms that four people suffered injuries as a result of a two-vehicle collision in Menifee, CA, on Tuesday afternoon, March 13, 2018. Only one of the victims, Apeles Nazario, has been publicly identified and very few details have been provided as the accident remains under an active and open investigation by authorities.
No official description of the accident has been provided, but it is believed the collision occurred just before 3:30 p.m. in the northbound lanes of 215 Freeway, just south of Newport Road. Nazario was the driver of one of the vehicles involved in the crash, a Ford Focus, and needed to be extricated from the vehicle after the accident. Nazario reportedly sustained a serious head injury in the collision, though no updates on the victim’s current condition have been released. The three additional unidentified victims sustained what are described as “minor injuries.” They were all taken to a nearby hospital for treatment and no updates on their respective conditions are available. No further details have been provided at this time.
