Posted on Jan 19, 2011
A 77-year-old woman is dead after her car was broadsided by a van at an Irvine intersection in an Orange County traffic accident.
The Irvine motor vehicle crash occurred at about 1:20 p.m. on Tuesday, January 18, 2011 at the intersection of Culver Drive and Farwell Avenue. Seventy-seven-year-old Patricia Thompson-Yates of Irvine was driving a Toyota car east on Farwell Avenue when her vehicle was broadsided by a van heading south on Culver Drive. Police say it is unclear which vehicle had the right-of-way at the time of the crash.
Thompson-Yates sustained life-threatening injuries and was taken to Hoag Hospital Presbyterian in Newport Beach. She was pronounced dead just before 2 p.m.
The driver of the van was not injured. Neither vehicle was carrying passengers.
The accident remains under investigation.
The Orange County accident attorneys at the Newport Beach Law Offices of Allen, Flatt, Ballidis and Leslie offer our sincere condolences to the family of Ms. Thompson-Yates.
