MISSION VIEJO, California (May 8, 2013) –Ana Martinez, 36, of Trabuco Canyon was killed Tuesday night after a suspected repeat drunk driver crashed head-on into her minivan while driving the wrong way on Santa Margarita Parkway, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times.
Just before midnight on May 7, William Carroll, 42, of Mission Viejo was driving his red and black Ford 250 pickup truck when he turned into opposing traffic on Santa Margarita Parkway. Carroll allegedly crashed head-on into Martinez’s white Toyota Sienna minivan.
Williams, a mother of three children ages 7 to 14 years old, died at the scene of the crash. Paramedics transported Williams by ambulance to Mission Hospital where he was listed in critical condition. His injuries are not life-threatening.
“This is a tragedy for the family of this young mother,” said Attorney West Seegmiller. “While this man may be held accountable in criminal court for his actions last night it’s important that a civil lawsuit be filed to ensure her children are taken care of financially.”
