Santa Ana, CA – Woman Dies in Head-on Collision on Fairview St

Santa Ana, CA (April 2, 2024) – Late on Sunday in Santa Ana, a head-on collision resulted in an area woman’s death.

According to a statement from the Santa Ana Police Department, officers were dispatched to the location of the incident, which was close to Fairview Street and 5th Street, at around 9:55 p.m. after learning of the crash. When they arrived, they discovered a head-on collision had occurred involving a Nissan Versa and a Chevrolet Tahoe.

Orange County Fire Authority rescuers took the woman to a local hospital, where authorities said she subsequently passed away from her injuries. Two others in the Chevrolet were not seriously hurt, but it’s unclear if they were also hospitalized. Investigators are still determining the facts behind the incident. As of now, the cause of the wreck remains unknown, though anyone with further details is encouraged to get in touch with SAPD.

We extend our sincere condolences to the deceased woman’s loved ones. Our thoughts also go out to the injured victims and their families in hopes of their full recovery.

Fatal Vehicle Wrecks in Orange County

Orange County, one of the biggest urban regions in California, has a fair share of traffic accidents every year. Car accidents continue to be a big worry for the locals despite the fact that the accident and mortality rates have dramatically decreased in recent years.

With millions of cars on the road, California is consistently ranked as one of the most high-traffic states, and auto accident deaths occur all too often. Every year, vehicle accidents claim the lives of around 30,000 individuals nationwide, and nearly 10% of the fatalities occur in vehicle collisions in California. Every day, automobile accidents in Southern California claim the lives of innocent drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and beyond.

However, the family or loved ones of a person killed in a vehicle collision caused by a negligent driver may have legal recourse in the aftermath. Typically, a wrongful death claim is filed by the head of the estate or a close family.  Generally speaking, filing a wrongful death case requires meeting two prerequisites. They are as follows:

  • You have to provide evidence that someone’s carelessness, recklessness, or intentional action resulted in your loved one’s death.
  • The family member filing the lawsuit must have suffered quantifiable losses as a result of the loved one’s death.
