Posted on Mar 17, 2014
Shortly before 11:15 p.m. on Saturday, March 15, 2014, two drivers were seriously injured in a crash in Santa Ana, reported the Orange County Register. The driver of a Ford Explorer ran a red light at the intersection of Civic Center Drive and English Street and crashed into a black sedan. Emergency responders transported both drivers to area hospitals to receive treatment for major trauma. Three passengers of the Explorer fled but were later found and interviewed, and a handgun was found in the street at the scene of the accident. Authorities did not arrest anyone involved in the crash and are investigating.
Motor vehicle crashes claimed the lives of or caused injury to 1,627 people in Santa Ana in 2011, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety. The agency ranked Santa Ana 6th out of 13 cities with populations over 250,000 for the number of fatal and injury accidents that occurred there that year; 1st place is the worst possible ranking. Traffic signals and signs were a primary collision factor in 129 of the fatal and 12,610 of the injury crashes that occurred in the state.
