Yorba Linda Double Fatal Vehicle Into House


At 11:24 PM Saturday night, the Orange County Fire Authority responded to reports of a vehicle into a structure in the 5600 block of Lakeview Avenue in Yorba Linda. Crews arriving on scene found a solo vehicle that had veered off the road at high-speeds up a berm where it was launched into the air before landing sideways into a home. Six occupants were home at the time with several coming within inches of the vehicle’s impact. Two adults and one child from the home were transported with minor injuries to an area hospital. Both occupants of the vehicle were pronounced deceased on scene by paramedics. Firefighters worked for nearly two hours to free the occupants of the vehicle whose bodies were trapped in the wreckage. All lanes of Lakeview Avenue between Via Arboleda and Buena Vista were closed until further notice. The Orange County Sheriff’s Department Major Accident Reconstruction Team is handling the investigation.
