At about 2:40 a.m. on Saturday, October 4, 2014, passengers Gregory Purcell Johns Jr. and Elmarcenia Johns, both 24 and from Murrieta, were killed in a rollover crash in Corona. While traveling southbound on 1-15, the driver of the 2007 Nissan Maxima in which the men were riding veered onto the dirt shoulder north of Indian Truck Trail, causing the vehicle to overturn. Authorities are investigating the crash.
