The California Highway Patrol is trying to determine why the driver of a Chevrolet Tahoe didn’t see an oncoming Lamborghini before pulling out into a San Jacinto intersection Monday, May 20.

The driver of the 2019 Lamborghini Huracan, Jose Jovel, 35, of San Jacinto, suffered a possible broken leg when the vehicles collided, CHP Officer Darren Meyer said. The driver of the 2000 Tahoe, Jose Suarez, 38, of San Jacinto, had an injury that was not considered life-threatening. The only passenger, Jovel’s wife, had a minor head injury.

All three were hospitalized, Meyer said.

The Tahoe had stopped at the stop sign on northbound Alessandro Avenue at the T-intersection with Ramona Expressway about 8:25 p.m. before beginning a left turn onto Ramona. The eastbound Lamborghini struck the driver’s side of the Tahoe. There was no signal on Ramona, Meyer said.


The Lamborghini had its headlights on, and neither alcohol nor drugs appear to have been a factor in the collision, Meyer said.

The owner of the blue Lamborghini had purchased the car only two days before the collision, Meyer said. That car can cost more than $320,000.
