According to The Orange County Register and My News LA, the tragic accident took place on Saturday morning. Officers reported the wreck shortly after 5:30 a.m.

The incident began when for an unknown reason a Toyota Corolla collided with the rear of a minivan on the northbound 405 Freeway in Irvine.
