The Riverside County Fire Department reported that the crash occurred shortly before 5:00 p.m. on a secluded trail near Rooster Road and Harvest Way.
The responding deputies and firefighters had to hike to reach the crash site, which likely involved an off-road vehicle that overturned. Two victims, both minors, were injured and transported to Inland Valley Medical Center for treatment.
One of the victims was found unconscious and with critical wounds, while the other had minor ones. No updates on their current conditions were released.
Sheriff’s deputies are looking into the circumstances that led to the crash. No further information was immediately available.

What to Do After a Car Accident
If you or a family member are in a car crash, dial 911 immediately. When speaking with law enforcement or an insurance company, it is essential to supply as much detail as possible and to avoid making any assumptions.
Sometimes victims will say they’re sorry even if they had nothing to do with the incident. Such actions could be used as evidence by the insurance to deny a claim.
