On Friday night at 9:50 p.m., a male and female adult were stopped at the red light in a Honda Civic at Collins Avenue preparing to turn north onto Glassell Street. A male adult driving an older model Dodge Ram rear ended the stopped Civic.
The two adults in the Civic suffered minor injuries and were treated at the scene. The driver of the truck was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased. It is unknown at this time if drugs or alcohol contributed to the collision.
At 10:29 p.m., a separate fatal collision occurred at Tustin Street and Taft Avenue. A male adult in a Porsche was stopped at Taft/Briardale preparing to turn south on Tustin. When the light turned green, the Porsche proceeded into the intersection. A male adult was driving a Kia Sol north on Tustin and failed to stop at a red light. The Kia collided into the Porsche in the intersection.
The driver of the Porsche was pronounced deceased at the scene. The driver of the Kia was transported to a local hospital in critical condition. Drugs are suspected to be a factor for the driver of the Kia and the investigation is ongoing.
