Two Fatal Accidents in Orange County

A fatal motorcycle accident took place in Anaheim, and another fatal car accident took place in Huntington Beach.

The first fatal accident took place in Huntington Beach on Warner Avenue.  At around 6:25 Wednesday evening, Police responded to reports of a crash on Warner Avenue east of Bolsa Chica Street. There were three cars involved in the collision: a 2000 Dodge Dakota pickup, a 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer, and a 2011 Audi A3.

The driver of the Dodge Dakota was taken to Long Beach Memorial Hospital. She was later pronounced dead at the hospital. Officials have not released her name yet. She was a 56 year old Lake Forest woman. The Lancer was driven by a 76 year old Huntington Beach woman. She sustained minor injuries and was taken to Huntington Beach Hospital. A 58 year old Huntington Beach man was driven the Audi. He was not injured in the collision.

Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the crash. Officers are asking any witnesses to contact the Huntington Beach Police Department’s traffic bureau.

The second fatal accident took place Thursday night at around 11:30 p.m. It was a fatal hit and run.  A 26 year old motorcyclist died in a collision on the 91 Freeway. The victim, Jesus A. Aguilar of Cerritos, was heading westbound on the 91. He was riding a 1997 Kawasaki motorcycle. Before the La Palma Avenue exit, a bag became entangled in his rear tire. This caused him to lose control of the motorcycle. He was thrown from the motorcycle, but he was still alive.

Witnesses saw that there was a bag attached to the back of his motorcycle. Another vehicle, a gold Honda Accord, struck him while he was on the ground. This second collision killed him instantly. Witnesses said that the Honda driver pulled over but then drove off.

Aguilar was pronounced dead at the scene. There is still an ongoing investigation. Anyone with more information should contact the California Highway Patrol.
