Lawyer for Santa Ana accident July 24 2017

Late Sunday night, 07-24-2017, a man was killed in a car accident after leading police on a high-speed pursuit through Santa Ana. The man’s 9-year-old daughter was present in the backseat of the car, but was not discovered until police approached the scene of the wreck, authorities stated.

The man, 43-year-old Juan Rodriguez, was a Costa Mesa resident who had three outstanding warrants related to drug sales. In the car, police found over $10,000 in cash, over half a pound of narcotics, and a loaded weapon, Corporal Anthony Bertagna said.

Prior to the crash, police were alerted to a report of a man waving a gun at a restaurant in Santa Ana shortly after 10 p.m. The description of the vehicle matched Rodriguez’s, and when police attempted to stop him for questioning, he fled. The vehicle traveled westbound, exceeding speeds of 80 mph; police lost track of the vehicle but soon came upon the crash. Rodriguez had slammed into a light pole and then wound up hitting a brick wall on West Pendleton avenue.

The girl was found at the scene of the crash and rescued from the vehicle with the assistance of the Orange County Fire Authority. She was transported to Orange County’s Children’s Hospital and was later confirmed to be in stable condition.
