LAGUNA BEACH, California (April 4, 2013) — Armando Garcia-Gonzales, 38, of Santa Ana and Alberto Casique-Salina, 47, of Anaheim were both killed Tuesday morning when their car was struck in a head-on crash with the driver of a Tesla on Laguna Canyon Road just north of El Toro Road, according to a press release issued by the Orange County Sheriff Coroner Department.

The Laguna Beach Police Department responded about 6:41 a.m. to the crash between a total of three cars that killed the driver and passenger of a Honda Accord and injured the driver of the Tesla who struck them.

The driver of a Tesla, Dr. Robert Pettis, a Laguna Beach ear, nose and throat doctor, allegedly was traveling northbound on Laguna Canyon Road. He told police that he initially collided with a third vehicle that caused him to veer into opposing lanes and crash with the Honda Accord, a report by KTLA News said. Pettis was hospitalized with minor injuries after the crash.

Police are seeking the public’s help in finding the third driver who was reportedly in a Mercedes Benz and fled the scene of the fatal Laguna Beach crash. Witnesses are asked to call the Laguna Beach Police Department at (949) 497-0701.
