Driver accused of DUI after 3-car crash in Anaheim kills motorist

A 28-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving early Sunday, Dec. 5 after Anaheim police say he ran a red light and caused a collision that killed a man and injured three others.

The crash occurred at 1:53 a.m. at the intersection of West Ball Road and South Magnolia Avenue, according to Sgt. Shane Carringer of the Anaheim Police Department.

A black Nissan Murano was heading west on Ball Road and failed to stop on a red light at the Magnolia intersection, Carringer said. The Nissan struck a black 2016 Honda Accord occupied by four men — three 30-year-old men and a 49-year-old man. The 49-year-old man, who was a rear-seat passenger, was pronounced dead at the scene, Carringer said. The three other people in the Honda were hospitalized with minor injuries.

One of the cars then struck a Toyota Camry, which had stopped at the red light facing Magnolia. No one inside that car was injured.

A person trapped had to be freed by firefighters, authorities said.

The Murano driver, Arturo Ramirezgomez of Anaheim, was subsequently arrested on suspicion of drunk driving, Carringer said. He suffered minor injuries and is in custody.
