When officials arrived they found a victim down in the lanes of traffic.

Officials quickly determined the victim had already succumbed to major traumatic injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene. No information about he victim has been released, pending further investigation and notification of the person’s family.

While officials worked at the scene they called for the temporary closure of westbound Domenigoni Parkway and just before 6 p.m. Hemet PD released a social media statement that read in part: “Domenigoni west bound lanes are closed due to a fatal accident investigation between Sanderson and Warren. Take alternate routes like Stetson Ave.”
