A 67-year-old Palm Springs man has been identified as the victim of a crash Sunday on the 10 Freeway in Cabazon.
Adam Peters was pronounced dead at the scene at 4:21 p.m. about 2.5 miles west of Haughen-Lehmann Way, according to a Riverside County Coroner’s Office news release.
A woman in the car with him suffered major injuries and was hospitalized, said California Highway Patrol Officer Ramiro Gonzalez.
Gonzalez said Monday that the cause of the crash remains under investigation. The victims were in a Mercedes-Benz that swerved off the roadway, hit a concrete culvert and rolled over, Gonzalez said.
A CHP incident log had indicated Sunday that a big-rig was involved in the crash. However, Gonzalez said there was no mention of a big-rig in the investigator’s preliminary report.
