Authorities have not ruled out impaired driving as contributing factor in collision
A 64-year-old man in a wheelchair was killed after being struck by a car in Stanton on Tuesday afternoon when a two-vehicle collision occurred on Beach Boulevard and Chapman Avenue in Stanton, said the Orange County Register.
As mentioned in the article, the accident occurred on Tuesday afternoon at about 2:47 p.m. at the busy intersection in Stanton.
Two vehicles were identified in the collision as an Acura and a Nissan Murano. They were both heading southbound on Beach Boulevard before they crashed into each other, causing the Acura to go up the curb after losing control, fatally running over the handicapped victim.
Additionally, the Acura continued down the sidewalk and struck several parked vehicles before coming to a halt.
Orange County Sheriff’s Deputies arrived at the scene of the accident and were able to assist in administering CPR to the fallen victim before he was transported to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead, said officials. Currently, the victim’s name has been withheld pending the notification of next-of-kin.
Additionally, the driver of the Acura remained at the scene during the initial investigation. It was not clear from the report if anyone else was injured as a result of the collision.
Currently, the crash remains under investigation and further details will be included once the authorities have concluded the investigation.
