At 6 p.m. Friday, Jan. 19, Werner Thatje, 74, of Hemet, was driving eastbound on Highway 74, three-quarters of a mile east of Keen Camp Road in Mountain Center when, in executing a left-hand turn, he allowed his vehicle to drift to the right, according to a California Highway Patrol report. In doing so, his vehicle hit the dirt embankment and overturned.

No one else was involved in the incident. Thatje was transported by American Medical Response to Riverside University Health System Medical Center in Moreno Valley with non-life threatening injuries.
