4 Ejected in Rollover Crash on 215 Fwy; 7 Critically Injured: Riverside County Fire Dept.
At least seven patients were being treated for “major” injuries after a rollover crash that resulted in four people being ejected from an SUV on the 215 Freeway in Mead Valley on Friday, according to a Riverside County Fire Department spokesperson.
The solo-vehicle collision occurred on the southbound 215 north of the Ramona Expressway just before 1:15 p.m., the California Highway Patrol’s incident log stated.
Seven ground ambulances were used to transport the critically injured patients to local hospitals, according to a Fire Department incident fact sheet. The information was later confirmed by Jody Hagemann, a senior public information specialist with the department.
The conditions of the seven injured were not immediately known.
At about 1:40 p.m., CHP issued a SigAlert on the southbound 215 Freeway, temporarily shutting down two of the three lanes. The SigAlert had been canceled by 3:10 p.m.
The cause of the rollover crash was under investigation.
