A wrong-way driver in a van died when they crashed head-on into a pickup truck on Sunday on Warner Avenue.
Police say the driver in the white Toyota van was traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes of Warner Avenue, prior to crashing into a gold Toyota Tundra pickup truck near Oak Street.
The crash was reported about 5:30 a.m. The Santa Ana Police Department stated that the two vehicles suffered major front-end damage in the crash. Paramedics responded and extricated the two drivers before transporting them to Orange County Global Medical Center.
The female driver of the van was rushed to surgery at the trauma center, but she later died at the hospital. The 62-year-old Santa Ana man driving the pickup truck suffered moderate injuries in the crash. Neither vehicle had any passengers aboard.
The police investigation is determining whether or not alcohol was a factor.
