A man killed in a two-car crash on the westbound Riverside (91) Freeway in Corona was identified Thursday as a 29-year-old Fullerton resident.
Trevor W. Davison died Tuesday night in the collision at Serfas Club Drive.
According to the California Highway Patrol, Davison was the front-seat passenger in a Chevrolet Sonic traveling in the slow lane about 10:50 p.m.
Officer Juan Quintero said a black Toyota Corolla was several miles ahead of the sedan when the driver lost control and hit a guardrail, then veered back into the slow lane, where the vehicle stalled, all lights completely knocked out.
“The two occupants of the Toyota exited the vehicle and safely ran to the shoulder,” Quintero said.
“Approximately 30 seconds later, the Sonic, traveling at an unknown speed, struck the rear of the Corolla. The force of the collision pushed the Corolla forward and into the No. 3 lane.”
The Sonic driver, whose name was not released, suffered minor injuries, but Davison’s head hit the windshield, causing fatal trauma, according to Quintero.
Corona Fire Department crews reached the location within a few minutes and found Davison unconscious and unresponsive. Paramedics attempted life-saving measures, but he died at the scene, Quintero said.
The people in the Corolla were not injured. The driver of the Sonic was treated at a hospital and released.
The westbound side of the Riverside Freeway was partially shut down while the wreckage was cleared and the CHP conducted a preliminary investigation.
All lanes were reopened at 2 a.m. Wednesday.
