Teen killed in suspected DUI accident
Posted on Jan 05, 2010
An 18-year-old woman died in the hospital following a crash caused by a suspected drunk driver.
The multi-vehicle accident occurred around 2am on Sunday, January 3. Anaheim resident Corbin White was a passenger in a 2006 Toyota Scion. The vehicle was stopped at a red light the intersection of Main Street and MacArthur Boulevard in Santa Ana when a 2006 BMW sedan crashed into it. The impact shoved the Scion into the intersection where it hit a Chevrolet Malibu that was making a left turn from westbound MacArthur to southbound Main Street.
The BMW also spun from the impact and hit a Toyota Corolla that was behind the Malibu.
The BMW sedan was driven by 36-year-old Robert Charles Serrano of Chino Hills. Serrano had left a bar shortly before the accident. After the wreck, Serrano left his vehicle and fled from the scene of the accident. He was later arrested and has been charged with one felony count of gross vehicular manslaughter and one felony count of fleeing the scene of an accident.
In 2005, Serrano pleaded guilty to driving under the influence. He has also been cited for numerous traffic violations.
White was taken to Western Medical Center of Santa Ana where she died from her injuries. The driver of the Scion was also taken to the hospital for treatment. The other drivers were uninjured.
The car accident attorneys at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis and Leslie would like to offer our sincere condolences to the victim’s family.
