65-Year-Old Corona Del Mar Woman Dies in Wrong-Way Crash on 73 Freeway near Campus Drive

 
NEWPORT BEACH, CA (June 5, 2019) – A woman was killed following a wrong-way crash Wednesday morning in Newport Beach, authorities said.
 
The crash happened just before 9:00 a.m. on 73 Freeway near Campus Drive and Birch Street.
 
Witnesses told officers that a silver Mercedes-Benz, driven by a 23-year-old Luke Fitch of Newport Beach, was speeding southbound in the northbound lanes of the freeway at more than 100 mph, when it crashed head-on into a white BMW.
 
The driver of the BMW was pronounced dead at the scene. She was later identified by family members as Arda Gulesserian, 65, of Corona del Mar.
 
Fitch was extricated from his vehicle and taken to the Orange County Global Medical Center in critical condition.
 
After the initial crash, a white Lexus collided with the Mercedes, but nobody in the Lexus was injured, authorities said.
 
It is unclear why the Mercedes was traveling the wrong way on the freeway, although some media outlets reported it may have been intentional. Officers were not able to get a statement from the driver because of his injuries.
 
Three northbound lanes of the freeway were closed as the investigation and cleanup operation were conducted at the scene.
