Gregg Wiles, 51, was killed in an Orange County car accident, which officials say, may have involved a red light runner. According to a news report in The Orange County Register, the fatal car accident occurred the afternoon of January 30, 2011 at the intersection of Portola Parkway and Pauling in Lake Forest. The car accident involved a Chrysler and a Nissan Altima. Wiles, who was driving the Chrysler sedan, was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. The other driver, a 56-year-old woman, sustained minor injuries. Police say alcohol or drugs were not factors, but that one of the drivers went through a red light.
I offer my deepest condolences to the family members and friends of Gregg Wiles for their tragic and heartbreaking loss. Please keep this grieving family in your thoughts and prayers.
