Crash Closes Corydon In Lake Elsinore

The rollover crash onto a fire hydrant happened shortly before midnight.

A motorist who may have misjudged a turn in Lake Elsinore rolled the SUV she was driving and landed on a fire hydrant, causing damage that forced a road closure late Monday night and into Tuesday morning.

The 51-year-old female driver from Lake Elsinore suffered minor injuries after she attempted to make the sharp left turn onto Corydon Road from the northbound side of Mission Trail leaving Wildomar. According to Sgt. David Sanches from the Lake Elsinore Sheriff's Station, the woman rolled the Honda CR-V during the turn and landed sideways on the fire hydrant.

The crash happened shortly before midnight and damaged the hydrant -- gushing water forced the closure of Corydon. Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District arrived on scene and shut the water off at 12:30 a.m.

The sergeant said officials were investigating whether there was a mechanical problem with the SUV, and he confirmed that alcohol or drugs were not factors in the crash.

The woman was transported via an ambulance to a local hospital.

At press time it was estimated that Corydon at Mission Trail would be closed to westbound traffic until at least 1 a.m. --Daniel Lane contributed to this report.

Slow down people. You don't have to be anywhere in that big of a hurry. I'm glad the woman is okay.

I agree with Keith, was she trying to take the corner at a high speed? As i've said before and i'll say it again, we have some of the worse drivers I have ever seen in this town.

Those damn SUVS! They are top heavy people!
Daniel Lane November 29, 2011 at 06:28 PM
Thank you.

The SUV should have "spun out" Flipping over is difficult even if you tried to. I go with excessive speed & either mechanical - defective vehicle design.

Hey Roberto, what qualifies you to render an opinion on what happened? You seem to be the expert.
Roberto November 30, 2011 at 12:08 AM
I think it's called common sense.

Curious November 30, 2011 at 03:34 AM

Curious November 30, 2011 at 03:35 AM

Evan 7:34pm on Tuesday, November 29, 2011 Okay Roberto, why dont you go get a copy of the collision report and compare your common sense with the real world. REPLY: Great idea...except we need you to bring something to the table. We are waiting on you now to dispute logic. Unless of course this is all just cyberbabble?
Curious November 30, 2011 at 06:31 AM
Do you mean dispute your "logic"????
Curious November 30, 2011 at 06:47 AM
Very good logic! I'm impressed.
Roberto November 30, 2011 at 06:48 AM
I've already drawn my own conclusions: "The SUV should have "spun out" Flipping over is difficult even if you tried to. I go with excessive speed & either mechanical - defective vehicle design"

all suv's have a tendency to flip in a "hard corner" or violent over-steer. they're inherently top heavy and most people who own them--shouldn't.. but they do. wanting to look cool and the dealers want to make them happy. a flat tire, on the phone, fell asleep, drifted off the road, or plain going too fast... maybe even got bumped by someone... who knows ? until they give a valid reason, it was an accident...
UNCLE FESTER November 30, 2011 at 04:23 PM
there ya go... CORRECT ! most of them will flip long before they spin out.
UNCLE FESTER December 03, 2011 at 04:40 PM
bad driving.. like a gun, it wont hurt anyone until its picked up and a car is NOT dangerous in the right hands. most people who have got their first suv, have no clue haw the react in any "quick reaction movement" or sudden abrupt turning.. not to mention, getting a tire "hung up'' on the roads edge...
