1 dead, 2 seriously injured when Corvette collides with SUV in Garden Grove

A 22-year-old man was killed Monday night, Feb. 15, when the Chevrolet Corvette he was a passenger in apparently veered into oncoming traffic and collided with an SUV in Garden Grove, police said.

It was just before 10:20 p.m. when police were called to the crash on West Street just south of Dunklee Lane, Garden Grove Lt. Carl Whitney said on Tuesday. Officers found a heavily damaged Chevrolet Corvette and a smashed-up Buick SUV.




Firefighters removed two people trapped inside the Corvette, said Capt. Jose Perez of the Orange County Fire Authority. Those two and the SUV’s driver were taken to a hospital.

The Corvette passenger died, Garden Grove police Lt. Carl Whitney said.

Witnesses saw the Corvette veer into the lanes of oncoming traffic leading to the crash, police said.

At the scene, Perez said that speeding appeared to be a factor in the crash, though police said the investigation was ongoing. Authorities were still determining if drugs or alcohol were involved.
