74-Year-Old Female Passenger Dies in Single-Car Accident near Diamond Drive

LAKE ELSINORE, CA (July 3, 2024)Maria Martinez Lomeli was killed Sunday afternoon, and two were hurt in a solo-car accident on Interstate 15. The fatal incident occurred around 1:50 p.m., along the southbound lanes of the freeway, just south of Diamond Drive. Investigators say the 71-year-old male driver of a 2004 Kia Sorrento lost control and went into the center median for reasons unknown. The vehicle then overturned and ejected the rear passenger, who was not wearing a seatbelt. Responding medical personnel transported the rear passenger to Inland Valley Hospital in Wildomar where she died from her injuries. Officials later identified the deceased woman as 74-year-old Lomeli, of Compton.
