According to California Highway Patrol Officer Denise Quesada, two people were killed in weekend crashes, with one that occurred at 3:41 a.m. Saturday killing a 34 year old Tustin man. The accident occurred when the man was traveling on southbound on the 55 freeway in the vicinity south of the 22 freeway. The 34 year old crashed into the wall on the right shoulder and then into a light pole.
The second fatal accident occurred at 4:30 a.m. on Sunday on the northbound lanes of the I-5 freeway in the vicinity north of Crown Valley Parkway. The accident involved a 1997 Crown Victoria collided with the left rear side of a 2007 Ford Edge. The collision caused the Crown Victoria to spin around and was then struck by the Ford Edge and then traveled into an embankment, where it rolled over several times.
According to the California Highway Patrol the Crown Victoria was traveling at a high rate of speed in the No. 1 lane, when the driver made an unsafe turn into the No. 3 lane. The driver was identified as a 24 year old man from Costa Mesa. The passenger in the Crown Victoria was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle. The woman’s identity has not been released pending notification of her next of kin, but coroner’s officials have stated the fatally injured passenger was an 18 year old woman.
