SANTA ANA, CA (May 22, 2024)A 66-year-old Garden Grove woman, Maria Quinones, died in a fatal traffic collision early Tuesday morning at the intersection of 17th Street and Tustin Avenue in Santa Ana, according to the Santa Ana Police Department (SAPD).

 

On May 21, 2024, at 4:19 a.m., SAPD received a call about a collision involving a Jeep Rubicon and a Honda Civic.
