The Riverside County coroner’s office Sunday identified a 71-year-old woman who died in a crash on the Riverside (91) Freeway in Corona.

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.

Joan McKee of Huntington Beach was pronounced dead at the scene, the coroner’s office reported.

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.
