CORONA: Two hit-and-run crashes on I-15 lead to teen's arrest

A Long Beach man was arrested Sunday, June 19, in connection with two hit-and-run crashes on Corona-area freeways. The first crash occurred about 12:30 p.m. in the northbound lanes of Interstate 15 south of Magnolia Avenue, said California Highway Patrol Sgt. Nathan Baer. At the time, there was heavy traffic on the freeway. A man driving a red Dodge Challenger along the right shoulder side-swiped a pickup that was hauling a trailer, Baer said. The Challenger didn't stop, Baer said. It continued north to the 15/91 interchange. Just before entering the transition road to the westbound 91, the Challenger crashed into a Toyota Sienna minivan. The driver again neglected to stop, Baer said, and proceeded west on the 91. Baer located the Challenger west of the Maple Street exit in Corona and pulled it over. The driver, identified as 18-year-old Cesar Gonzalez, was taken into custody without incident. Gonzalez was booked into jail on suspicion of leaving the scene of an accident. Officers trying to determine whether Gonzalez was under the influence of narcotics when the crashes occurred, Baer said.
