Last updated 10/18/2018 at 12:33pm

One person was killed on Thursday, Oct. 18 in a head-on collision on Clinton Keith Road near Bear Creek Drive. The crash, that resulted in an additional injury, happened about 8:20 a.m. in the unincorporated area of Murrieta.

The identity of the victim is unknown pending notification of next of kin.

The California Highway Patrol reported that the collision involved a large box truck and a Toyota RAV 4 and required the closure of the road for what was anticipated to be quite a while to account for an investigation and cleanup of debris.

"Clinton Keith Road will be closed in both directions at the Cal Fire Station 75 west of Bear Creek Drive," Murrieta Police Department said in a Facebook post. "Please use an alternate route to access the La Cresta area until further notice."

The CHP initially responded to scene, but the investigation has since been turned over to the Murrieta Police Department.

This is a breaking news story that will be updated when more information becomes available.
