A man and a woman were killed and 2 others injured after a driver attempted to illegally pass other vehicles in Moreno Valley, CA on Thursday, September 5, 2019. The crash reportedly happened at about 1:10 pm along Gilman Springs Road and Jack Rabbit Trail. The driver of a white 1993 Corvette was driving his vehicle on the westbound lanes of SR 60 when he tried to illegally pass vehicles on the right shoulder and clipped the front wheel of a tractor trailer, losing control of the Corvette. The driver of the Corvette then crashed his vehicle into a Jaguar SUV heading eastbound on SR 60. The male driver and female rear passenger of the Jaguar were killed in the crash. 2 other passengers in the Jaguar sustained non-life threatening injuries from the accident.
