HEMET – Two motorists died Sept. 29 in a head-on crash near downtown Hemet.
The collision happened about 4:50 a.m. on Stetson Avenue, between Cawston Avenue and Warren Road, according to Hemet police Lt. Glen Brock.
The driver of a 2016 Dodge Dart was going eastbound on Stetson at 60 mph and allowed his vehicle to drift into the westbound lanes – directly into the path of a Toyota Corolla, Brock said. The Toyota driver was unable to maneuver out of the way, he said.
Both motorists were pronounced dead at the scene moments later. Their names were withheld pending family notification.
