Lake Elsinore: Passenger Nidhi Burman Killed in Rollover Crash
Posted on Apr 01, 2014
At about 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 30, 2014, 27-year-old Nidhi Burman, of Temecula, was killed in a rollover crash in Lake Elsinore, reported The Press-Enterprise. While traveling northbound at about 85 miles per hour on I-15, the 28-year-old driver of the 2014 Honda CRV in which Burman was a passenger became distracted near Main Street and drifted to the right, rear-ending a 2006 Chrysler 300. The impact sent the Honda off the road, causing it to roll multiple times before coming to a rest in a field along Camino Del Norte near Ohana Circle. Burman, a passenger in the Honda, was ejected. She was declared dead at the scene. Authorities are investigating the crash.
