County authorities Wednesday identified a man who died in a three-vehicle crash on State Route 79 in San Jacinto.

The crash occurred at 9 a.m. Tuesday on the southbound side of the highway near Gilman Springs Road, according to the California Highway Patrol.

According to the CHP, one vehicle overturned, and a tractor-trailer was among the vehicles involved in the crash.

One person died at the scene, while two others were taken to hospitals — one with moderate injuries and another with minor injuries, according to the Riverside County Fire Department.

The person who died was identified by the Riverside County coroner’s office as Aaron Begnaud, 33, of Orange County.

Both sides of the highway were shut down after the crash, but all lanes reopened later Tuesday morning, according to Caltrans.
