Riverside, California – The Riverside County Sheriff-Coroner released the name of the man who died when his vehicle collided with another car Tuesday at the intersection of Barton Street and Krameria Avenue.

56-year-old Russell Santos, of Riverside, died in the crash that happened at about 11:30 a.m. on July 7.

A white 1998 Ford bus and a 2000 Toyota Tundra were involved in the wreck.

The Riverside Police Department conducted a preliminary investigation that revealed that Santos was driving the Ford south on Barton Street and, at the same time, a 20-year-old Riverside resident was driving the Tundra north on Barton.

The driver of the Tundra made a left turn onto Krameria and ended up in front of the Ford that had also entered the intersection.

The vehicles collided and the Ford flipped onto its side.

Emergency crews found Santos trapped underneath his vehicle and pronounced him dead at the scene at 11:39 a.m.

The 20-year-old driver sustained moderate injuries. He was taken to the hospital for treatment.

Alcohol or drugs are not believed to have contributed to the accident.
