Three people were hurt, including one with major injuries, when a pickup truck struck a tree in Temecula, authorities said Monday.

The crash was reported around 11:50 p.m. Sunday at De Portola Road and Remuda Drive, said Riverside County Fire Department spokeswoman Jody Hagemann.

One patient suffered major injuries and two had moderate injuries, Hagemann said. They were taken by ground ambulance to hospitals for treatment.

The vehicle was a Chevrolet Dually with two rear wheels on each side, according to the California Highway Patrol. Firefighters extricated the driver from the wreckage, the CHP said.

The person who is causing this problem is an immature loser. If you can't provide an argument or opinion without stealing identities so out in the street and play with the traffic.

I live near where this accident happened. It is extremely dark at night with no street lights as it is an unincorporated part of Temecula. The problem is people get going really fast on these country roads and they don't see the turns coming up on them and next thing you know they are off the road or like this gentleman they hit a tree. Maybe alcohol was a factor but I have seen enough accidents out here where the driver was sober. However, in those accidents speed was a factor.

@jen, thanks. Sounds like a bad wreck if the firemen had to extricate them. Hope they're ok.
