The California Highway Patrol reported a rollover crash in Winchester on Tuesday, Dec. 11 involving a single vehicle that sent the driver, a 19-year-old female from Hemet, to the hospital after being airlifted from the scene.

The unnamed driver was driving her 2000 Toyota 4-Runner westbound on Borel Road, which is a dirt road, just east of Winchester Road at an undetermined speed and was unable to negotiate the curve and struck a raised dirt embankment causing the vehicle to roll over.

The driver was not wearing her seatbelt, causing her to get ejected from the truck before it came to rest on its roof pinning her leg underneath it. CHP and CalFire Riverside responded to the scene and after emergency personnel freed the driver from the wreckage, she was airlifted to Inland Valley Hospital with major injuries.

The California Highway Patrol, Temecula Area is conducting this traffic collision investigation.

Officer Mike Lassig would like to remind all motorist to always buckle up because seat belts save lives and prevent injuries.
