Teen Driver Killed in Garden Grove Collision

Posted on October 3, 2017 | Written By: iadminlaw

Teen Driver Killed in Garden Grove CollisionThe Orange County Coroner’s Office has released the identity of 19-year old Jose Fernandez of Garden Grove, as the driver who was killed in a single-vehicle collision in the early hours of Saturday, Sept. 30th. According to a preliminary investigation by the Garden Grove Police Department, Fernandez was driving a Toyota SUV northbound on West Street, south of Chapman Avenue, when he collided into a power pole. Evidence at the scene suggests that Fernandez was traveling at an extremely high rate of speed when he crashed into the power pole, splitting it in half, and causing heavy damage to the SUV. Police officers and firefighters were dispatched at about 3:15 a.m. to the intersection where they found the Toyota SUV rolled onto its roof. A male passenger was ejected from the vehicle and the male driver was trapped inside. Garden Grove firefighters were successfully able to extricate Fernandez from the SUV. He was transported by ambulance to nearby UCI Medical Center where he was pronounced dead by medical staff. The passenger who was ejected from the SUV was also taken to UCI Medical Center, where he is in stable condition. He is expected to survive.

At least 1,800 people in the nearby neighborhoods lost power for about an hour after the collision, as a result of the power pole being damaged. 3 women who appeared to be family members arrived at the scene Saturday morning. They were visibly distraught when they saw the wreckage. The collision is still under investigation and authorities have not determined if alcohol or drugged factored into the crash. Witnesses are being asked to contact Garden Grove police to provide information they may have about the crash at 714-741-5230.
