Many Orange County residents soaked in the sun and enjoyed a summer preview this last Sunday, but for two unlucky drivers in Santa Ana, this weekend will be very difficult to recover from. According to the Orange County Register, two drivers suffered serious injuries in a two-vehicle crash Sunday night. The crash occurred at about 10:10 p.m. in the 1800 block of North Tustin when one driver traveling southbound drifted across lanes and struck another vehicle going northbound, said Cmdr. Steve Colon with the Santa Ana Police Department. Neither driver suffered life-threatening injuries.
Luckily, both drivers were able to escape with their lives. My thoughts and condolences go out to friends and family of the victims. I know what it is like to sit bed-side with someone you love and pray that everything will go back to normal. I wish all involved a speedy and complete recovery.
