IRVINE, CA (September 13, 2018) – Two people were killed Wednesday morning and another was injured following a two-vehicle collision on Oak Canyon. The identities of the victims were not immediately released, pending notification of family members.
As per reports, the incident took place shortly after 10:00 AM near Valley Oak Drive. An SUV stopped at a stop sign to prepare for a left turn. As it proceeded to turn, the SUV entered the path of an oncoming box truck.
The two vehicles collided, fatally injuring two women inside the SUV. A third occupant was rushed to a hospital with moderate injuries. Witnesses claimed that the victims were elderly women.
Meanwhile, the driver of the truck remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators.
