A fatal vehicle accident occurred on Friday around 12:37 in the morning in Santa Ana involving a single vehicle. The crash took place when a BMW ran into the median of a road and hit two trees. Tragically, the passenger of the vehicle passed away. The driver had severe injuries and was arrested because it is thought that he was under the influence. The accident is being investigated further to determine if the driver was under the influence and racing. Allegedly, the driver may have been racing a Dodge Charger at the time of the accident before losing control of their vehicle.
