Temecula Driver Crashes Into Garage, Seriously Injured

Christopher Marion was not wearing a seat belt in the roughly 10:50 p.m. Wednesday crash in the 31000 block of Strawberry Tree Lane in Temecula, a sheriff's sergeant said.

A 28-year-old Temecula man was hospitalized Thursday, following a major injury crash in which alcohol may have played a part, officials said.

Christopher Marion was not wearing a seat belt in the roughly 10:50 p.m. Wednesday crash in the 31000 block of Strawberry Tree Lane, according to Riverside County sheriff's Sgt. John Magnan.

A 1994 Dodge Viper driven by Marion slammed into the garage door of a condominium, Magnan said, also injuring his passenger.

Both occupants were taken to area hospitals, Magnan said.

The road was closed for more than five hours overnight, the sergeant said.

The cause of the crash was still under investigation and anyone with information was asked to call Temecula police at 951-696-3000.

How many of the usual blogspects on Patch Googled the name "Marion" to see if there was a Spanish origin? Haha. I love how the accident on the 15 @the checkpoint generated such angry commentary, but a possible DUI crash that left two severally injured and one family displaced flies under the radar.

Stop taking any chance to jab at someone based on origin. A crash, by any other name, would still have nothing to do with legal status. Cik Bast, that goes for you and all of your cronies.
