Lake Elsinore, CA (August 05, 2020) – A municipal garbage truck and a car collided with one another on the morning of Wednesday, August 5th at the intersection of Turner Street and Grand Avenue in the city of Lake Elsinore.
According to emergency dispatch logs, the two-vehicle collision was brought to the attention of officers from the California Highway Patrol at about 7:30 a.m.
Police records indicate that the driver of a red four-door Toyota Camry and a garbage truck collided with one another for reasons that have yet to be determined.
The force of the impact caused the Toyota to flip over onto its roof and then land right side up as it came to a stop in a roadside ditch. Emergency medical personnel were also dispatched to the scene of the accident where they provided the necessary treatment or transportation to anyone who sustained injuries during the collision, but no additional details were made immediately available.
Officers from the California Highway Patrol are still working to determine cause and liability for this accident. The report did not indicate whether or not any traffic citations had been issued to either of the drivers involved.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
