Hemet, CA. – On Monday, April 1st, 2024, at approximately 2:14 PM, Hemet Police Communication Center began receiving multiple 9-1-1 calls in reference to a rollover traffic collision within the Echo Hill Estates, located at 1700 S. State Street.   Officers arrived and located a black GMC Envoy which had obvious signs of being involved in a rollover collision.  Further investigation revealed that the GMC was the only vehicle involved in the crash and the sole occupant of the vehicle had succumbed to his injuries prior to life saving measures being attempted.
