Two incidents, one a DUI arrest, and a second, a motorcycle crash, occurred on Hill roads during this past week.
At 8:01 p.m. Thursday, May 26, Dennis Fredrickson, 80, of Del Mar, was driving his silver 2006 Lexus sedan westbound on highway 74, 500 feet east of Keen Camp Road when, on a left curve, he lost control of his vehicle and hit the mountain. Airbags deployed, and when California Highway Patrol arrived, the officer said he smelled alcohol on Fredrickson’s breath. Fredrickson was arrested at the site of the incident. He was not injured, and no other vehicles were involved.
In a second incident, at 2:20 p.m. Sunday, May 29, Guillermo Flores, 22, of Redlands, was riding his black 2015 Yamaha Sportbike north on Highway 243, a half-mile south of Vista Grande, when he lost control in a left-hand curve, laid the bike down and was ejected onto the highway. Flores complained of pain and was transported by American Medical Response to Riverside County Regional Medical Center. CHP cited Flores for lacking a motorcycle endorsement on his driver’s license.
