Driver killed in head-on crash in Riverside

A driver was killed and another injured in a head-on crash in Riverside on Friday, April 1.

Around 3 p.m., a black 2018 Audi driven by an 18-year-old Jurupa Valley man was heading west on Mission Inn Avenue, near Indian Hill Road, authorities said. For an unknown reason, the Audi crossed into opposing traffic lanes, where it collided with a red 2003 Chevy Trailblazer driven by a 58-year-old Jurupa Valley woman.

The driver of the Chevy was taken to a hospital where she later succumbed to her injuries. Her identity has not been released pending notification of family.

The Audi driver was transported to a hospital with moderate injuries.

The crash shut down the stretch of Mission Inn Avenue from Mount Rubidoux Drive in Riverside to Crestmore Road in Rubidoux for several hours on Friday while detectives investigated.

Police said it was not immediately known if drugs or alcohol may have been a contributing factor in the crash.
