A violent collision between two cars sent three to the hospital and traumatized a young boy Thursday morning in Garden Grove.
According to the Garden Grove Police Department, the vehicular scuffle took place at the busy intersection of West Street and Orangewood Avenue just before 9:30 a.m.
There were some conflicting reports about the particulars of the crash, though the GGPD’s account details that a Suzuki Aerio travelling westbound on Orangewood drove through a red light and smashed into a Mitsubishi Lancer traveling northbound on West.
The collision was violent enough to send the small Mitsubishi rolling onto its roof and to crush the entire front portion of the Suzuki.
A man and woman inside the overturned Lancer were immediately taken to UCI Medical Center, said Orange County firefighters who were called to the scene. The extent of their injuries is not known, though they do not appear to be life threatening.
There was also a young boy inside the vehicle, who was transported to the hospital as well, though he was uninjured. Officers at the scene reported that the boy was clearly traumatized by the crash.
A female passenger inside the Suzuki was also transported to a nearby hospital; the severity of her injuries is also unknown.
Police shut down the intersection to allow for the cleanup of the accident and to investigate what lead to the collision. It is unknown why the Suzuki made its way through the intersection against a red light, there is no indication about any drugs or alcohol, or if it was just a bit of distracted driving.
