A 28-year-old motorist who died in a three-vehicle wreck at a Riverside intersection was identified Wednesday.
William Castro of Riverside was found in grave condition when Riverside Fire Department paramedics reached the crash, which happened at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday 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, driven by Castro, and a Scion were crossing in the southbound lanes of Van Buren.
The Dodge struck the Honda first and then the Scion, Wilson said. He did not say whether the SUV ran a red light.
Castro was taken to Riverside Community Hospital, where he died a short time later.
The SUV driver and the motorist at the wheel of the Scion, whose identities were not disclosed, did not require hospitalization, according to the police spokesman.
Castro was identified Wednesday by the Riverside County coroner’s office following the notification of his family.
The crash remains under investigation, and anyone with information was asked to contact the police Traffic Bureau at 951-826-8723.
