The Murrieta Police Department is investigating a head-on traffic collision that claimed the life of a passenger. The fatal accident occurred on Sunday around 6:45 a.m. on Whitewood Road, south of Clinton Keith Road.
The passenger, identified as 83-year-old Lilia Seno of Winchester, was transported to a local hospital where she succumbed to her injuries. The drivers of both vehicles were also transported to a local hospital in stable condition.
A preliminary investigation revealed that one of the vehicles involved was possibly traveling on the wrong side of the road and into oncoming traffic before the collision, the Murrieta Police Department said in a news release.
Speed does not appear to be a factor in the collision. No evidence of driver impairment was found, the department said.
Anyone with information related to this traffic collision and who has not been contacted by a Murrieta Police officer or investigator is asked to contact Investigator Larsen at 951-461-6844 or [email protected] or Traffic Bureau Sergeant Steve Whiddon at 951-461-6323 or [email protected].
