Another fatality occurred on Ramona Expressway just west of Warren Road on Thursday, Nov. 16, 2017 at about 4:30 p.m. Two people were killed and another two were seriously injured in a head on collision on that stretch of road just outside the city limits of San Jacinto.
Riverside County Sheriff-Coroner officials later identified one of the two drivers killed in the accident as Jonathon Wright, 24, of San Jacinto.
According to family and friends, Wright was on his way to work when the collision occurred. He succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene by medical personnel at 4:46 p.m., approximately 20 minutes after the accident.
The other man killed was a 23-year-old Hemet resident, identified by coroner officials as Wesley Tebo, who died after being transported to Riverside University Health Systems. Tebo succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead by hospital staff at 5:25 p.m.
California Highway Patrol investigators determined that Tebo was driving a 2007 Toyota Camry eastbound on Ramona Expressway and Wright was traveling westbound on Ramona Expressway in a 2010 Toyota Scion.
“For reasons yet to be determined, the driver of the Camry swerved left, across double yellow lines and directly into the front of the Scion,” CHP Public Information Officer Darren Meyer explained after the collision.
Both sedans had passengers in the right front seat of the two cars and both sustained serious injuries.
