Driver dies in Riverside crash

Driver dies in Riverside crash

RIVERSIDE — A man died Saturday evening when his car crashed into a tree in Riverside.

The crash was reported about 5:50 p.m. on eastbound Victoria Avenue, according to Riverside police Officer Ryan Railsback.

“Paramedics attempted lifesaving measures on the driver but he died at the scene unfortunately,” Railsback said. The driver was the only person in the car.

Victoria was closed at Jefferson Street while the Major Accident Investigation Team worked, he said.

A police statement later said the vehicle was a Toyota Corolla, driven by a 32-year-old Riverside resident and that the crash happened in the area of Victoria and Grace Street.

Motorists were advised to use Lincoln Avenue to get around the closure.
