PALM SPRINGS: Red-light crash hurts 8, triggers blackout

PALM SPRINGS: Red-light crash hurts 8, triggers blackout


A red-light crash hurt eight people — including four children — and blacked out more than 500 homes and businesses in Palm Springs, according to police investigators and the Southern California Edison website.

The wreck was reported about 12: 15 p.m. Thursday, April 16, at Indian Canyon Drive and Racquet Club Road.

An eastbound, black Chevy Impala ran a red light and hit a Chevy Suburban and a Ford Edge, both of which were southbound, Sgt. Harvey Reed said of the preliminary findings.

The impact caused life-threatening injuries to three people: an adult driver and passenger in the Impala and an adult passenger in the Suburban.

Suffering minor injuries were the four children and an adult, Reed said.

The crash damaged a utility pole, causing an electrical outage near the crash site and at a second location near Via Escuela and Camino� Sur, police said.

Two hours after the crash, more than 507 homes and businesses remain without electrical power, the Edison website said. But service had been restored to all but seven customers by 4:17 p.m.

Anyone with additional information may call police at 760-323-8125.
