Daniel Iglesias, 19, was killed in a car accident in Santa Ana after the vehicle in which he was a passenger was involved in a two-car collision. According to The Orange County Register, the incident occurred the afternoon of July 15, 2012. Officials say Iglesias was the sole passenger in a Pontiac Trans Am that collided with a full-sized SUV on McFadden Avenue after the driver of the Pontiac swerved to avoid hitting a white minivan. The minivan did not remain at the scene after the crash. The SUV smashed through the right passenger side of the Pontiac fatally injuring Iglesias. The Pontiac’s driver was transported to an area hospital.
Possible Non-Contact Hit-and-Run
An elderly female passenger in the SUV was also taken to a local hospital with complaints of pain. Three others in the SUV were uninjured. Witnesses told officials that the white minivan was traveling north on Pacific Avenue, which dead-ends at McFadden with a stop sign. When the minivan entered McFadden, the Pontiac swerved to avoid it. The Pontiac then crossed into opposing lanes of traffic and was hit by the eastbound SUV. Police are searching for the driver of the white minivan. Anyone with information is asked to contact Santa Ana police at 714-245-8665.
My heart goes out to the family members and friends of Daniel Iglesias for their tragic and devastating loss. My thoughts and prayers are also with the injured victims of this crash. I wish them the very best for a speedy and complete recovery.
