The Banning-Beaumont Patch is reporting that one person was killed on Friday in a fiery accident that involved two-vehicles and knocked down powerlines.

According to police, firefighters arrived at the scene of the accident at about 12:43 a.m. at the intersection of Magnolia Street and Bonita Avenue, which is just south of the 10 Freeway, said Jody Hagemann of the Riverside County Fire Department.

Firefighters from the Riverside County and Morongo Fire Departments responded to the scene of the accident and have confirmed that one person died. The identity of the victim has not been released, nor have any details been released about the number of people involved in the accident.
