SAN JACINTO - A tractor-trailer and sedan collided early Wednesday, Aug. 7 in San Jacinto when the smaller vehicle veered into the truck's path, leaving its two occupants seriously injured, authorities said.

The trucker suffered minor to moderate injuries in the 2 a.m. collision near the intersection of Sanderson Avenue and the Ramona Expressway, according to Riverside County sheriff's Sgt. Bryan De Loss.

He said the big rig was headed north on the expressway and turned onto Sanderson to continue northbound when a Toyota coupe approached, going south on Sanderson. The sergeant said the driver of the Toyota abruptly turned right, then left, steering into the semi's path.

“The two vehicles collided in the northbound lanes, causing major damage to both,'' De Loss said.

The Toyota's driver and passenger were taken to Riverside University Medical Center in Moreno Valley, where they were listed in critical condition, he said.

The northbound side of Sanderson was closed at the scene until 9 a.m.while a preliminary investigation was conducted, De Loss said.
