Orange County, California Motor Vehicle Crashes in Anaheim and Huntington Beach Cause Injuries and Fatalities

December 31, 1969

Two children who were involved in an Anaheim car accident this morning were sent to the hospital. The collision occurred when a Jeep Grand Cherokee struck a Chevrolet pickup truck from behind. The kids, a 7-year-old a girl and a 10-year-old boy, had been riding in the SUV.

They were transported to an Orange, California hospital with what appears to be minor injuries. However, the boy, who was not wearing a seat belt, did strike his head against the Cherokee's windshield hard enough that the glass cracked. Their mom, who was driving, and the other motorist were not injured.

Meantime, a 7-month-old baby who was involved in a Huntington Beach multi-vehicle crash that killed one person on Wednesday is reportedly in critical condition still. The infant was riding in a Ford Bronco that rolled over on its roof after colliding with a Honda. However, the Bronco didn't flip over until a third vehicle drove into the collision scene. The Honda's driver is the one who didn't survive. Police are trying to determine exactly what happened.

Another Huntington Beach car crash claimed one person's life early this morning. Just before 2 am, a tow truck crashed into a parked Chevrolet Impala on Springdale Street south of McCarthy Street. While the truck's driver wasn't injured, the 77-year-old man and his 13-year-old grandson who had been seated in the parked Impala were taken to the hospital. The man was later pronounced dead. The boy appears to have sustained minor injuries.

"An Orange County, California car crash can be devastating not just for the victim, but also for loved ones and friends," said Howard Law, PC Founder and Anaheim injury attorney Vincent Howard. "There may be a way to hold all responsible parties liable."

On Sunday night, a Los Alamitos truck crash killed one person and seriously injured another when it drove into a tree off the I-605. Fortunately, the truck did not contain radioactive material as was originally thought.

Yesterday, a Garden Grove bus crash resulting in a multi-vehicle collision left three people with minor injuries on the 22. The collision happened at around 7:19 am as an Orange County Transportation Authority bus, which was merging onto the freeway close to the on-ramp on Harbor Boulevard, rear-ended an Acura sedan that then struck a Ford Mustang that then hit a pickup truck.
