The Riverside County coroner’s office Saturday identified the 38-year-old man who died in a multi-vehicle crash on the 215 Freeway in Riverside.
The crash took place at 2:10 p.m. Friday near Columbia Avenue, the California Highway Patrol reported.
Spencer Smith of Menifee was taken from the scene to Riverside Community Hospital but later died of his injuries, the coroner’s office said.

Shortly afterward, the CHP reported that a man was lying in the fast lane.
