Comments Off

A 24-year-old man from Anaheim was killed in a car accident on the Long Beach Freeway on Saturday. He was a passenger in a Camry that hit a tree. The 18-year-old driver was believed to be driving under the influence when he lost control of the vehicle.

As he approached the overpass at about 70 mph, Arvizu swerved to the right to enter the transition lane and lost control of the Camry.

The car went over a raised concrete divider, down an embankment and hit a tree, the report said.

The other passenger in the car was hurt and taken to a local hospital to be treated for her injuries. The driver was uninjured in the car accident. He has been arrested following the accident.
