On August 14, 2018 at 7:14 PM, Deputy O. Rodriguez and Deputy W. Samuelsen received a call of a single vehicle traffic collision on Date Avenue and California Street. A Ford Expedition was traveling west on Date Avenue at a high rate of speed, toward California Street when the vehicle lost control and collided with an Edison pole. The vehicle continued west, colliding with another Edison pole, a fire hydrant and approximately seven curbside mailboxes. The driver was transported to Loma Linda University Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries. He was suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol and criminal charges will be sought through the District Attorney's Office at the conclusion of the investigation.

Yucaipa City Roads assisted with overnight closures, as did Yucaipa Valley Water District and Southern California Edison. Date Avenue will be closed for several hours as utility repairs are made. Southern California Edison expects to open the road in the late afternoon on August 15, 2018.
