One Dead after Garden Grove DUI Fiery Crash on 22 Freeway

 
GARDEN GROVE, CA (June 9, 2019) – A person suffered fatal injuries after a suspected DUI fiery crash in Garden Grove on Sunday, June 9.
 
According to the California Highway Patrol, at around 4 a.m., officers received reports about a two-vehicle crash involving a Honda and a semi-truck. They responded on the eastbound side of 22 Freeway east of Valley View Street.
 
When officers arrived at the crash site, they discovered a semi-truck engulfed in flames with fuel leaking.
 
Upon investigation, CHP found out that there were two separate collisions. The first involving the passenger vehicle, which swerved into the right shoulder and then landed on the wrong way. Then a semi-truck slammed into the passenger vehicle and then went over the center divider. After that, the semi overturned and caught fire.
 
The driver of the semi, believed to be a contractor carrying U.S. Postal mail, succumbed to injuries sustained at the incident.
 
A video from the scene showed packages and mail scattered all over the freeway.
 
Officers arrested the 26-year-old male driver of the passenger vehicle on suspicion of DUI.
