WILDOMAR - A female motorist died today in a two vehicle crash in Wildomar that left two other people seriously injured.

The collision at Bundy Canyon and Walnut Creek roads was reported at 5:53 a.m., said Cheri Patterson of the Riverside County Fire Department.

The driver of a Nissan sedan was traveling west on Bundy Canyon Road and drifted onto the north shoulder, said Sgt. Marc Cloutier of the Wildomar Police Department.

"(She) overcorrected her turn, causing her vehicle to enter a side spin and skid into oncoming lanes, where she collided with an eastbound Toyota Yaris," Cloutier said. "The force of the collision split the Nissan in two, just behind the driver's doorpost."

The female motorist died at the scene.

Two other victims were taken to Inland Valley Hospital with major injuries, including multiple broken bones, Cloutier said.

Anyone with more information on the crash was asked to contact the Wildomar Police Department at (951) 245-3300.

Gone too soon. Just saw her last weekend and I can't believe she's gone. My prayers go out to both families who were involved in the car accident. We will miss you so much!
