Two Adults on Bicycles, Three Children in Trailers Hurt in Garden Grove

GARDEN GROVE (CNS) – A man and woman on electric bicycles and their three children being pulled in bike trailers were injured  by a hit-and-run driver who was caught and arrested, authorities said Monday.

The two adults were riding with the children in tow around 7:35 p.m. Sunday on in the 12300 block of Haster Street at Twin Tree Lane when they were struck by a black  2003 Toyota Camry, and the driver left the scene, Garden Grove police Sgt. Nick Jensen told City News Service. A Google search showed the neighborhood was a mix of single-family homes and apartments near the Garden Grove (22) Freeway.

“A nearby witness followed the suspect vehicle and notified officers of its whereabouts as it fled the scene of the collision,” said Traffic Investigator John Yergler. “Officers located the vehicle, conducted a traffic stop and detained the driver/solo occupant of the vehicle approximately 1.2 miles from the original collision scene.”

One adult and two children were rushed to hospitals in critical condition, Jensen said. One adult and one child were hospitalized with stable vital signs.

The three critically injured patients remained in that condition and one of the stable patients was treated at a hospital and released, Yergler said.

The victims were described by Yergler as a 27-year-old man, a 25-year- old woman, two girls and one boy.

The suspect’s name was not released, but the investigator said he is a 29-year-old Santa Ana resident.

“Sobriety tests were administered and the driver was ultimately arrested for suspected DUI and hit and run,” Yergler said.

He asked that anyone who witnessed the crash and has any additional information or has video footage call him at 714-741-5772 or email at Johny@ggpd.org.
