Costa Mesa Collision

A Costa Mesa collision left two women injured.

The collision took place on Tuesday morning on Harbor Boulevard and Sunflower Avenue. Police reported that the collision took place at around 7:43 a.m. There were two vehicles involved a white Ford Explorer SUV and an Infiniti G35 sedan. The Ford Explorer SUV reportedly broadsided an Infiniti G35. The SUV was traveling east on Sunflower and collided into the Infiniti G35 sedan. The sedan was traveling north on Harbor. At the time of the collision, the intersection at the traffic signal had just turned green. According to witnesses, the driver of the Infiniti did not enter the section prematurely.

The SUV’s driver is a 58 year old woman from Huntington Beach. She was transported to Fountain Valley Regional Hospital and Medical Center. The SUV driver was cited for a red light violation. The sedan driver is a 51 year old woman from Newport Beach. She was transported to Hoag Hospital. Both women complained of neck and back injuries.

Luckily, more people were not injured in this accident. These two streets often experience heavy traffic. There are also usually many pedestrians in the area. The intersection is located near many businesses and restaurants. It is also close to Whittier Law School, WestMed College, National University, and The Art Institute of California Orange County. This accident could have fatally injured bystanders. Thankfully, no one was injured in this crash.

Survivors of car accidents often sustain serious injuries. These injuries can be physical and emotional. Physical injuries usually require extended hospital stays and expensive hospital bills. Emotional trauma can affect different people in various ways. Some survivors of car accidents may have experience trouble driving. Medical insurance may cover some of these costs, but there are still many bills that insurance does not cover.

There is also tremendous damage done to the vehicles involved in a car accident.  Car repair bills can be quite expensive. The insurance of the responsible party should cover the bills, but the other drivers involved may not have insurance. You may be stuck with an expensive repair bill.

Man Blows Himself Up

A Costa Mesa man blew himself up in an apparent suicide on April 14.

The 52 year old male may have been a schizophrenic. He had a history of mental illness. His neighbors found him odd but harmless. Authorities found, in his home, a 17,000 word essay, titled” The Pricker: A True Story of Assassination, Terrorism and High Treason.” The essay referenced aliens, the O.J. Simpson trial, and the U.S. Government. It also discussed “the breaker”, which the man described as an assassin’s weapon capable of depositing biological agents into a victim’s skin without their knowledge.  In this essay, he discussed the U. S. Government. He accused the government of controlling information and assassinating individuals through freak accidents.

The man blew himself up in his home on the 3100 block of Bermuda Drive in Costa Mesa at around 7:30 p.m. A couple hours earlier neighbors called emergency authorities because the man was laying in his front yard. Neighbors reported that he was unconscious. An ambulance was called, but the man refused to go to the hospital. He was confrontational and difficult. Authorities left the scene. After the authorities left, there was a loud explosion. Neighbors stated that the blast sounded like a loud boom similar to fireworks. Authorities later found the man dead in his home.

The FBI and Costa Mesa police reported to the scene. The Orange County Sheriff’s bomb Squad and Orange County Fire Authority Hazardous Materials unit also reported to the scene.  Investigators believe that the man used a homemade explosive.  Additional homemade devices were found at the scene. Investigators believe that there were a total of three bombs in the home.  The bomb squad was able to safely detonate the bombs.  According to authorities, the bombs were crudely made.

Police evacuated residents from the surrounding homes as a precaution. Officers will continue to search the property for any other explosives. Thankfully, no one else was injured in the explosion. Investigation into the explosion is ongoing.

If you see any suspicious activities, do not hesitate it to report it to the authorities. You could prevent seriously horrific events from happening. Do not try to help or interfere with the situation. The authorities can handle the situation. It is best to be safe and stay away from the incident.
