California Highway Patrol officer Gabe Montoya said that the crash was reported in the residential area of Martha Ann Drive at about 9:30 p.m.

According to Lou DeGraaff, one of his elderly neighbors crashed into a low wrought iron fence on his property and knocked it down. Her pickup truck was stuck on the fence but the rear wheels kept spinning and the truck was revving because her foot was still on the gas pedal.

The woman apparently lost control of her vehicle while she was traveling west on Martha Ann Drive when she suffered from a medical condition. Her vehicle swerved off the road and into her neighbor’s fence.

The woman was later pronounced dead at the West Anaheim Medical Center.

According to witnesses, the woman was traveling at a low rate of speed. The woman’s husband came to the scene and turned off the engine, while other neighbors called the police.

Paramedics arrived on the scene and performed CPR before transporting her in the ambulance.
