A military vehicle was involved in a rollover crash Wednesday afternoon on the southbound 215 Freeway in Menifee, California, according to officials. The military transport truck crashed and then overturned, eventually rolling down an embankment and into the parking lot of a hardware store, as NBC 4 reported.
Officials confirmed that the rollover accident left five people hospitalized with moderate to minor injuries.
According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), the crash occurred at approximately 12:40 p.m. on the southbound 215 Freeway in Menifee, just south of McCall Boulevard. CHP officials indicated that the military six-wheeler vehicle was part of a convoy, possibly from the U.S. Marine Corps base Camp Pendleton. The military vehicle was towing a large trailer when it suddenly lost control, veering off the right shoulder of the interstate and over the freeway, eventually landing on its side.
The force of the rollover crash ultimately resulted in the military rig landing in the parking lot of Sun City Hardware, at 28250 McCall Blvd., according to a report from the Riverside County Fire Department.
The CHP indicated that the exact number of military personnel in the vehicle could not be determined. Additionally, no confirmation on which military branch was affiliated with the vehicle or if any of the injured victims were civilians was provided.
According to an ABC 7 report, personnel from other vehicles within the convoy immediately pulled over to assist the injured victims. Additionally, a Riverside County Fire Department firefighter-paramedics team responded to the scene minutes after the crash occurred.
Cal Fire confirmed that five injured victims were transported to a local hospital – two with moderate injuries and three others with minor injuries.
NBC 4 confirmed that a fuel spill stemming from the crash was reported, leading to a hazardous materials team being dispatched to the scene for a clean-up operation.
The CHP reportedly shut down the slow lane of the southbound 215 freeway shortly after the crash, and a Sigalert was issued at approximately 1 p.m. yesterday due to the closure and its impact on traffic.
An investigation began shortly after the military vehicle rollover crash was confirmed, but the cause of the accident was not immediately known.
