[03-02-2023] Riverside County, CA – Multi-Vehicle Collision on 60 Freeway Injured Two People

[03-02-2023] Multi-Vehicle Collision on 60 Freeway Injured Two PeopleTwo people sustained injuries in a multi-vehicle collision on Moreno Valley (60) Freeway in Riverside County on Thursday morning, March 02, 2023.

The California Highway Patrol reported that the three-vehicle crash occurred around 10:15 a.m. on the eastbound 60 Freeway east of Timothy Lane between the cities of Beaumont and Moreno Valley.

Three vehicles were reportedly involved in the chain collision: a BMW hatchback, Dodge Ram 1500 pickup, and a Ford pickup. Though the investigation continues, it may have likely started when the Ford pickup rear-ended the BMW.

Responders from the Riverside County Fire Department arrived afterward and located two motorists who sustained moderate injuries. They were transported to Riverside University Medical Center in Moreno Valley. The number of people involved is unknown.

The crash caused both eastbound lanes to be shut down, and an hour later, at least one lane was still closed as the clearing of wreckage continued.

There were no other details available right away while the authorities looked further into the collision.
