Corona, CA – Motorist Dies after Violent Traffic Accident at Intersection of Magnolia Avenue and Santana Way
Corona, CA (August 31, 2018) – Local news sources reported that a motorist died as the result of a violent traffic accident involving multiple vehicles that took place at the intersection of Magnolia Avenue and Santana Way. The incident happened at 11:00 AM on Thursday, August 30, 2018. As of today, the Riverside County Coroner’s Office has identified the deceased victim as 29-year old Corona resident Michael Arellano. No detailed information concerning the identities of the Jeep and the Jetta driver has been revealed at this time.
Based on the initial report, an unidentified man had been driving a Jeep Cherokee northbound along Magnolia when, at some point, he failed to stop with traffic that had stalled at a red light. Meanwhile, Arellano had driven his Honda Accord into the left turn lane and was attempting to turn into a nearby shopping center when, without warning, the Jeep plowed into the rear of his vehicle.
The force of the impact sent the Accord careening into the junction of Magnolia and Santana and plowed into a Volkswagen Jetta.
Right after the crash, Arellano was transported to Corona Regional Hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries and died sometime later.
Meanwhile, the Jeep driver was sent to Riverside Community Hospital to receive injuries of an unspecified nature.
Officials confirmed the Jetta driver did not sustain injuries during the impact.
As of now, investigators are looking into the cause of the crash.
We extend our most heartfelt prayers and our most loving thoughts to the family and friends of Michael Arellano and wish them strength and peace of mind during this difficult, tragic time.

Given the circumstances, officials are still unsure of how the collision took place. As the investigation continues, officials will consider if drugs, alcohol, negligence, recklessness, or distracted driving played any roles in the events leading up to the accident. Likewise, forensic teams will inspect the Accord, the Jeep, and the Jetta and examine photos of the crash site to determine if mechanical issues or system failure contributed to the collision in any way.
Once the case is resolved, the members of the deceased victim’s family may have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party and, ultimately, receive compensation for funeral expenses, the tragic loss of a loved one, and additional unfortunate circumstances.
