A 28-year-old motorist was killed Tuesday in a three-vehicle wreck at a Riverside intersection.

The crash happened about 12:30 p.m. at Jurupa Avenue and Van Buren Boulevard, according to the Riverside Police Department.

Sgt. Ryan Wilson said a 36-year-old Banning man was going west on Jurupa in his Dodge Durango SUV and entered the intersection just as a Honda Accord and a Scion were crossing in the southbound lanes of Van Buren.

The Dodge struck the Honda first and then the Scion, Wilson said, without specifying whether the SUV ran a red light.

Riverside Fire Department paramedics reached the crash scene within a few minutes and found the 28-year-old Honda driver, whose name was not immediately released, in grave condition.

Wilson said the victim was taken to Riverside Community Hospital, where he died a short time later.

The SUV driver, whose identity also was not disclosed, and the motorist at the wheel of the Scion did not require hospitalization, according to the police spokesman.

The crash remains under investigation, and anyone with information was asked to contact the police Traffic Bureau at 951-826-8723.
