MENIFEE (CNS) – A 23-year-old woman was killed when she lost control
of her car and crashed on a Menifee road while possibly driving the influence,
authorities said today.
Gabriela Almazan of Menifee was fatally injured about 11:50 p.m.
Sunday on McCall Boulevard, just east of Sherman Road, according to the Menifee
Sgt. Matthew Bloch said Almazan was at the wheel of her Nissan Versa
going westbound on McCall at an undetermined speed when she struck the curb,
causing the sedan to become airborne and overturn on the four-lane corridor.
No other vehicles were involved.
Witnesses called 911, and Menifee police and Riverside County Fire
Department paramedics reached the location within minutes.
The victim was taken to Menifee Global Medical Center, where she died
less than an hour later.
“Alcohol is believed to be a factor in this collision,” Bloch said.
The investigation is ongoing.
