HUNTINGTON BEACH, California – Abraham Perez, 30, of Long Beach was identified as the man killed Wednesday morning when an orange Ford Bronco crossed over the center divider and struck his silver Honda head-on on Bolsa Chica Road, according to an Orange County Sheriff Coroner report.
Perez, a father of two children, a boy, 4, and a girl, 13 years old, was pronounced dead at the scene of the three-vehicle crash just south of Argosy Avenue about 7:30 a.m., the report said. After the Bronco struck Perez’s vehicle and rolled over, a third vehicle slammed into the wreckage as it was unable to stop quickly enough. The woman driving the Bronco was injured and a 7-month-old baby in the SUV was critically injured in the crash. The baby was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Huntington Beach Police Department is investigating the crash to determine why the woman lost control of her vehicle.
A second fatal crash was reported in Huntington Beach early Thursday morning about 2 a.m. at the intersection of Springdale Street and Slater Avenue, but details are not yet available.
