MENIFEE, California – Three teenagers were injured, including one in critical condition, after a single-vehicle crash late Saturday night on Garbani Road near Menifee Valley Middle School, according to a Riverside County Fire Department press release.
Driver William Johnson, 19, of Menifee was driving a Chevy pickup truck with three passengers, according to news reports. Early reports suggested that Johnson was allegedly speeding and lost control of the vehicle about 11:50 p.m. causing the pickup truck to roll over and ejecting two passengers. A third victim remained trapped under the vehicle until firefighters were able to rescue them. Two of the victims were not wearing seatbelts, according to news reports.
Paramedics transported all three injured teenagers to Inland Valley Medical Center in Wildomar. Police said that Johnson was not injured in the rollover car accident. The Riverside Sheriff’s Office is investigating the collision to determine if there were any other factors that caused the crash.
