Was a recklessly driven red Ford minivan the primary cause of a horrific deadly crash on the Riverside (91) Freeway in Corona that killed at least one victim?

Authorities Sunday hunted the minivan driver as they tried to piece together how the victim died.

The crash was reported at 5:53 p.m. Saturday on the eastbound Riverside Freeway west of Main Street, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Witnesses told the CHP a red Ford minivan was driven recklessly before the crash and that a pedestrian was down in the fast lane.

A white sedan, blue minivan, blue SUV, orange pickup and silver minivan were stopped at the scene, but it was unclear which, if any, were involved in the crash.

The coroner was summoned to the scene at 6:25 p.m. and American Medical Response reported taking two people to hospitals, according to the CHP.

A SigAlert was issued at 6:07 p.m. shutting down both Fastrack lanes and lanes 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the eastbound Riverside Freeway and diverting traffic off the freeway at Lincoln Avenue.
