This is the same place where there was a deadly crash on January 26. I spoke with a man involved in that crash. His girlfriend was killed in it and because he lives right next to the crash he says seeing the victims in the crash has been tragedy layered on tragedy. https://t.co/pvh2QAsv4s

“This is an extremely rough call,” Orange County Fire Rescue Chief Thomas Veal stated. “We have senior firefighters who have been on the department 15-plus years and this is never easy, especially when you talk about children. And our hearts go out to the families and the community.”
The driver of the car survived, but suffered serious injuries. The SUV driver suffered minor injuries.
