Luis Bates Car Accident
On the morning of October 16, a devastating vehicular accident unfolded on San Jacinto’s Ramona Motorway, claiming two lives and leaving two others with significant injuries. The catastrophic event involved a trio of vehicles and has left the community in mourning.
The incident transpired shortly before 6:30 a.m., near Warren Road, turning the motorway into a chaotic scene strewn with shattered glass and twisted metal. Initial reports from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department suggest that an eastbound SUV, traveling at an excessive speed, attempted an ill-advised overtaking maneuver.
In a horrifying sequence of events, the SUV veered dangerously into the center of the road, colliding head-on with an oncoming utility truck. The impact sent the SUV careening back into its original lane, where it was subsequently struck by another vehicle.
Tragically, both occupants of the SUV were pronounced dead at the scene. Among the deceased is 66-year-old Artesia resident Luis Bates, whose identity has been confirmed by authorities. The identity of the second victim remains undisclosed at this time.
