An early morning two-vehicle accident in Santa Ana left one motorist injured as the other auto driver fled the scene. The accident transpired Friday morning around 7 a.m. at the intersection of Bear Street and Segestrom Avenues. Eyewitnesses indicated that a silver Dodge minivan was traveling northbound on Bear when it collided with a white Oldsmobile that was traveling eastbound on Segestrom. The minivan rolled over on its side trapping a 59-year-old man and a 17-year-old passenger inside. The Oldsmobile driver leapt out of his car and fled on foot. Firefighters and paramedics were able to eventually rescue the minivan occupants. The 59-year-old complained of pain and was immediately taken to a local area hospital; the teenager was unhurt.
Authorities report that it was unclear who was at fault for the collision and that the investigation is ongoing. Bear, Segestrom, Raitt Street and Alton Avenue were all closed for clean up and assessment.
