Shortly before 12:30 p.m. yesterday, a teenage driver was seriously injured in a car accident in Fountain Valley. The 18-year-old was traveling along Rose Avenue when her Ford Focus collided with a Mazda SUV at Bushard Street, the impact causing her to suffer severe head injuries. She was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. The 17-year-old driver of the SUV remained at the scene for questioning. Authorities are investigating this crash and have requested that anyone who witnessed it call the Fountain Valley Police Department at 714-593-4481, according to an Orange County car accident attorney.
