HEMET — No injuries were reported after a man lost control of his vehicle and overturned while driving on S. Santa Fe St., south of Florida Ave., in Hemet Saturday morning, June 29.
LEADING THE RCNS HEADLINES:
City of Hemet Police and Fire Departments, along with AMR and other emergency personnel, were dispatched to the solo-vehicle crash around 10:45 a.m. this morning.
Hemet PD arrived within one minute of the dispatched call and found a late model, black Toyota Corolla upside down on its roof, along the west side of Santa Fe and partially on the sidewalk.
The male driver of the sedan had already managed to climb from the overturned vehicle and he was evaluated by paramedics. He later declined further treatment and was released at the scene.
The man’s vehicle was eventually righted back onto its wheels and towed from the area.
Hemet PD is investigating the cause of the rollover crash and their investigation is ongoing.
