Shortly after 1 a.m. on Sunday, July 20, 2014, two women were killed in a DUI crash on Interstate 15 in Corona, reported The Press-Enterprise. While traveling at speeds of up to 100 mph in a black 2014 Lexus sedan, 34-year-old Julio Reyes, of Riverside, rear-ended the silver Toyota in which the women were riding south of Hidden Valley Parkway. The impact caused the Toyota to burst into flames. Both women were pronounced dead at the scene. Twenty-one-year-old John Lopez, of Fontana, an occupant of the Lexus, was taken to a hospital with moderate injuries. Reyes, who sustained minor injuries in the accident, was arrested on suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and drunken driving causing bodily injury.
Corona accounted for 8 of the 153 fatal and 874 of the 10,025 injury accidents that occurred in Riverside County in 2011, according to the California Highway Patrol’s most recently published crash data. Alcohol was a contributing factor in 32 of the collisions that resulted in injury or death in Corona. Sixty-eight of the accidents were speed-related, and 20 occurred between 9 p.m. and 2:59 a.m.
