22-Year-Old Man Killed in Crash on I-215 Freeway
CHP reported a fatal crash in Menifee on Monday morning, August 1st.
22-year-old Hector Serrano was the passenger in a pickup truck driven by his father.
The two were traveling on the I-215 Freeway just before 6 a.m. when the truck overturned onto its side.
The truck was traveling near a semi-truck when the semi got a flat tire. In an attempt to avoid a collision with the big rig, the pickup swerved towards the center median, causing the father to lose control.
As a result, the pickup truck overturned, causing major injuries to Hector Serrano, sadly leading to his death at the scene.
An active investigation remains underway.
