The crash occurred around 11:33 PM on the westbound SR-91 Freeway, between the Peralta Weigh Station and Imperial Highway, when a silver 2018 Toyota Corolla departed the roadway and launched over a fence into the Santa Ana River.

Medics evaluated the man at the scene though he did not appear to be injured.
Slick roads are believed to have played a role in the single-vehicle crash.
