One injured in crash near Park Hill South in Riverside

Updated: 2013-10-01T13:45:47Z

Two crashes early Tuesday near Park Hill South High School in Riverside sent one person to the hospital.

The injured person — not a high school student — had to be extricated from a car and suffered injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening, said Sgt. Brent Holland, a spokesman for Riverside police.

The first crash occurred about 7:05 a.m. when two vehicles collided at the intersection of Northwest Northwood Road and Northwest River Park Drive West.

About 15 minutes later, while emergency crews worked the first crash, four vehicles collided in a rear-end chain-reaction crash at Horizon Parkway and Northwest River Park Drive West. No one was injured in that crash.

Investigators did not immediately know whether inattentive driving or traffic backed-up by the first wreck contributed to the second crash.
