The Riverside County coroner’s office Wednesday identified a San Bernardino man who was killed in a two-vehicle crash in Jurupa Valley.

The crash occurred at 12:50 p.m. Tuesday at the intersection of Mission Boulevard and Wineville Road. When emergency crews arrived at the scene, they performed life-saving measures on the man, who had suffered major injuries, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

Despite those efforts, Jose Ortega Jr., 59, was later pronounced dead at the scene, according to the coroner’s office.

“The driver of the other vehicle did not sustain any injuries, remained on scene and cooperated with the investigation,” Sgt. Luke Torres said.

There were no passengers in either vehicle.

The crash was under investigation, and alcohol or drugs were not believed to have been a factor, Torres said.
