According to a recent Orange County Register article, there was a fatal accident on Friday early morning in which a street sweeper crashed head-on with a vehicle, leaving one Santa Ana resident dead.
As mentioned in the article, the accident occurred at about 2:50 a.m. on Friday, September 1st.
Brandon Gonzalez, 21, was driving his Toyota Scion down Cerritos Avenue just east of Knott Avenue, reported the article.
The young man crashed head-on with the street sweeper, although the article gave no indication of how the collision occurred.
