A man was critically injured Friday, July 24, after being struck by a car he had been driving after a passenger took the wheel of the vehicle, according to police.
Around 1:45 p.m., Garden Grove officers responded to the 12000 block of Tamerlane Drive, where they found a man lying in the street, police said in a news release.
The man was transported by ambulance to a hospital. His name was not released and details regarding his injuries were not immediately available Saturday.
