Francisco Toribio Penaloza Dead in Santa Ana Pedestrian Crash on Bristol Street
SANTA ANA, CA (June 25, 2020) – Early Tuesday afternoon, Francisco Toribio Penaloza died in a pedestrian accident on Bristol Street.
According to Cpl. Anthony Bertagna, the white four-door BMW struck the pedestrian at 1:10 p.m. It took place on Bristol Street and McFadden Avenue.
Reports revealed that Francisco tried to cross Bristol Street while “drifting around from side to side.”
Meanwhile, the male driver of the BMW traveled south on Bristol Street. As he drove through the intersection on a green light, he hit the pedestrian.
At this time, it’s still unclear whether Toribio Penaloza used a crosswalk or not.
Moreover, the driver underwent a field sobriety test, which he failed. Afterward, the police detained him on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs, Bertagna added.
“Had he not been driving under the influence, it would have been the pedestrian’s fault,” Bertagna stated.
As the authorities continue to investigate the fatal accident, they also questioned witnesses. Meanwhile, the Orange County District Attorney’s Office will announce whether they will file specific charges or not.
