WILDOMAR -- A 58-year-old Wildomar man sustained major injuries on Saturday, June 19 and had to be transported to a local area hospital after being pinned between two vehicles in a traffic accident that happened in the area of Palomar Road and Mission Trail in Wildomar, a sheriff's official reported.

A report from Riverside County Sheriff's Department said the 24-year-old male driver of a Toyota Tacoma was traveling westbound on Palomar Road shortly after 8 a.m. when he swerved across the roadway for unknown reasons.

The 24-year-old driver struck a Ford F250 pick-up that was parked on the Advertisement

south side of the road when he swerved, according to Sgt. Nathan Kaas

The victim was standing behind the Ford F250 when it was struck by the Tacoma, and the brunt of the impact caused the car to be pushed back into the car behind it, pinning the man, Kaas said.

Officers arrived to the location shortly thereafter and Cal Fire and American Medical Response (AMR) gave him medical aid. The man was listed in critical but stable condition at this time, according to Kaas.

Alcohol or drugs did not appear to be a factor in the crash, Kaas said.
