Garden Grove, CA (January 1, 2019) – A DUI accident in Garden Grove has killed a 9-year-old girl and a 33-year-old woman. The fatal crash happened on the morning of January 1 on the 22 Freeway.

The suspect, a 30-year-old Orange resident, was speeding in a BMW on the westbound 22 freeway, near Valley View Street. He rear-ended a Lexus, which hit a sound barrier wall. The BMW then rear-ended a Ford F-150 pickup truck, causing it to overturn. The overturned pickup truck hit a Mazda 3.

The 9-year-old girl, who was a passenger in the pickup truck, died at the accident scene. A 33-year-old woman was rushed to a local hospital, where she later died. Nobody else was injured.

It was determined that the driver of the BMW was driving under the influence. He was

taken to jail and charged with felony drunk driving and gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to the friends and loved ones of the victims.

Ladder Accidents

Ladders may seem fairly simple to use. After all, all you have to do is climb up the rungs until you reach your desired height. However, ladder use is more complicated than you may think. It’s also very dangerous, resulting in 90,000 emergency room visits and killing 700 employees every year. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) believes that all of these injuries and deaths could be prevented.
