3 Teens Killed in Palm Springs Area Crash
PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (May 28, 2021) — A fatal crash on Highway 111 last week in the Palm Springs area has claimed a third victim.
One of two people who were taken to the hospital has died.
A total of four people were riding in a vintage, 1970 Dodge Dart Swinger. The vehicle reportedly veered off the roadway before it overturned multiple times near Angel Canyon Trail. The location is between Windy Point and the Palm Springs Visitor Center.
The Desert Sun reports that two of the victims died at the crash scene between 8:14 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. The male, 17, and female, 16, were both from Banning and are identified on the Riverside County Sheriff Coroner’s website.

Meanwhile, two others who were riding in the Dodge Dart were transported to Desert Regional Medical Center. Both suffered major injuries in the crash and one of them later died at the hospital. The fourth is expected to survive the crash.
Investigators seek to determine what led up to the fatal Highway 111 crash, but early indications are that speed was a factor.
