Even with a busy Memorial Day on the Hill, the California Highway Patrol reported only one incident — an injury crash on private land in the Pinyon communities off of Highway 74.

At 10:45 a.m. Monday, May 29, Lupita Soto, 60, of Palm Desert, was driving her 1995 Toyota Previa westbound on Pinyon Drive,  two-tenths of a mile west of Jeroboa Road, when she made an unsafe turning movement causing her vehicle to overturn.

Soto was injured in the crash with abrasions and was taken by American Medical Response ambulance to Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs. Neither alcohol nor drugs were cited as causative factors in the CHP report.
