The crash happened Sunday at around 6:49 p.m. near the area of Van Buren Street and Avenue 48. Viewers told News Channel 3 that the crash happened right in front of Rancho Las Flores Park.

Deputies were called to the area to respond to a hit-and-run crash. Deputies arrived at the scene and found an overturned SUV with an adult passenger and a juvenile passenger stuck inside, a spokesperson for the Riverside County Sheriff's Department told News Channel 3.
