Woman Dies in Multi-Vehicle Collision on 91 Freeway
60-year-old Stefanie Beltran, of Perris, was killed in a multi-vehicle accident in Riverside Tuesday morning.
The collision took place on June 14th within the northbound lanes of the I-215 Freeway.
It was just before 8 a.m. when a Ford hatchback, Toyota Tacoma pickup, and Chevrolet Suburban collided.
According to reports, a tire from a vehicle bounced over the media into opposing traffic as a result.
One of the vehicles also ended up on the southbound side of the freeway.
Beltran suffered fatal injuries and was sadly pronounced dead at the scene at 8:15 a.m.
A SigAlert was also issued due to the closure of the HOV and No. 1 lanes.
Investigators are actively working to determine the cause of the accident.
JT Legal Group sends our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Stefanie Beltran.
Multi-vehicle collisions are typically more common in busy intersections or highways. Speeding, weather, distractions, and drowsy or intoxicated driving are main reasons negligent drivers cause these types of wrecks.
When it comes to filing a claim with this type of collision, it gets difficult. This is because multiple vehicles are involved so determining liability can take much longer. Multi-vehicle collision claims are more complex due to numerous victims, multiple negligent drivers, cross-claims and insufficient insurance.
