An SUV driver who was not carrying any identification was seriously hurt today in a high-speed crash in Lake Elsinore.
The crash happened around 3 a.m. at the intersection of Grand Avenue and the Ortega Highway, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.
The man was headed south on Grand when he apparently lost control of a 1999 GMC Jimmy, which plowed into a light pole while traveling at a “high rate of speed,” sheriff’s Sgt. Rick Garcia said.
He said the motorist suffered multiple injuries and was rushed to a hospital in serious condition.
Deputies could find no identification on the victim, nor in the vehicle, according to Garcia.
“The driver is … Hispanic, possibly in his late 20s and was admitted to the hospital as a John Doe,” the sergeant said.
Anyone with information was urged to call the sheriff’s Lake Elsinore station at 951-245-3300.
