Woman Killed in DUI Crash at Euclid Street and Chapman Avenue in Garden Grove

59-Year-Old Woman Killed in Garden Grove Car Accident at Euclid Street and Chapman Avenue

Garden Grove, California (April 16, 2020) – A 59-year-old woman was killed Wednesday afternoon in an alleged DUI car accident in Garden Grove, according to authorities.

The fatal wreck occurred at around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 15 at the intersection of Euclid Street and Chapman Avenue.

Authorities said the woman was stopped at the intersection when, for unknown reasons, her vehicle was rear-ended by a 2017 Honda. The force of the impact pushed the woman’s car into a third vehicle.

Emergency crews responded to the scene and found the woman unconscious. She was rushed to the University of California, Irvine Medical Center, where she later succumbed to her injuries. Her name was withheld pending notification of family.

Authorities said the driver and a passenger in the third vehicle were not injured in the accident.

The Honda driver sustained significant injuries and was transported to the hospital. He was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and will be booked into custody upon release from the hospitall, police saidl.

The accident remains under investigation. Anyone with information regarding the collision is asked to call Officer Ashby at 714-741-5823.

According to Arin Khodaverdian, the Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group, a separate investigation by an experienced attorney is necessary to clearly uncover the circumstances surrounding the collision. “An attorney will also help the victim to navigate all the legal processes in pursuit of fair compensation and justice. Car accident claims are rarely straightforward, and, regardless of the circumstances involved, liable insurance companies will often do everything possible to limit their out-of-pocket expenses by either devaluing or outright denying your claim. It is crucial, therefore, that you have an experienced attorney on your side,” said Arin.

What to Do At the Accident Scene

Nobody is ever prepared for an accident. However, knowing what to do in case you are involved in the accident is very crucial. The following steps will help you ensure your safety and the safety of others.

  1. Stay at the scene and don’t panic.

  3. Notify the police even if no one is injured. The police will examine the scene and document the accident. At this point, it is important to record accurate information. You can later request a police report.
  4. If the accident is minor, it is advisable to move the vehicles to the shoulder and turn on your vehicle’s hazard lights to ensure the safety of other motorists.
  5. Gather information about the other drivers involved in the accident. Also, talk to witnesses and get their information.
  6. If possible, take photos of the damage to your car and the surrounding area.
  7. Do not admit fault or discuss the accident with anyone. Do not sign any papers unless requested by the police.
