Two non-injury, single-vehicle traffic incidents occurred on Hill roads last week.
At 11:45 a.m. Thursday, April 20, Joe Gutierrez, 26, of Riverside, was driving a red 1998 GMC Sierra west on Highway 74, two-tenths of a mile west of Fobes Ranch Road, when his vehicle veered to the left, crossed over the double-yellow line and overturned on the left shoulder of the highway.
Gutierrez told the responding California Highway Patrol officer that he may have struck something in the road before veering to the left. Gutierrez was not injured and there were no other vehicles involved.
At 6:38 a.m. Monday, April 24, Jack Tsushima, 64, of Idyllwild, was driving a white 2012 Kia Soul northbound, one-half mile south of Marian View Drive in Idyllwild, when he struck a deer in the road. Tsushima’s wife Carolyn, 65, was a passenger in the car. Neither Mr. nor Mrs. Tsushima was injured and the vehicle was able to be driven away after the crash.
