Posted on Nov 05, 2014
On Halloween night, 65-year-old John Roger Alcorn was killed and his 4-year-old son was seriously injured in an accident in Irvine, reported the Los Angeles Times. A Mazda 3 struck the father and son at about 7:15 p.m. while they were trick-or-treating on West Yale Loop near Burwood Street. He later succumbed to the trauma he suffered. Emergency responders transported his son to an area hospital, where he was in critical but stable condition. The female driver remained at the scene and is cooperating with authorities. The accident is under investigation.
The California Office of Traffic Safety’s most current records indicate that 845 people were killed or injured in traffic accidents in 2011, the most current year for which crash data are available. Twenty-seven of the victims were pedestrians: one of the pedestrians was under the age of 15 and two were aged 65 or older. In a comparison of 55 cities with populations of between 100,001 and 250,000, the OTS ranked Irvine 36th for traffic accidents and 54th for pedestrian accidents in a ranking system in which 1st place is the worst.
