People take dangerous risks on Hwy 79 and have for many years. Passing is almost impossible anymore with as much traffic as there is on 79, but people are still in a hurry and try to pass, some not successful. We were on our way to Temecula shortly after the accident happened, couldn't tell if it was a head on with 2 cars or maybe a motorcycle was involved. We went around the accident on side roads, heading southbound you could turn left by the French Valley Airport and back onto Hwy 79. Sorry to hear there was a fatality.

Common sense prevails when traveling Highway 79 South. Drivers of slow moving vehicles rarely use the turnouts causing miles of congestion. CHP will religiously wait for the occasional speeder, however they are reluctant to enforce slow moving vehicle laws, signs are clearly posted and several turnouts are available.

For those drivers traveling via Highway 79 south should be considerate and exercise caution and yield to allow the normal flow of traffic.
