Police seek woman reportedly in car crash

May 28, 2007

Police are looking for a woman who was driving a vehicle that had been reported stolen after she was said to have crashed near 19th Street and Irvine Avenue early Saturday, police said.

Police responded to a traffic collision that left at least three people injured just before 2 a.m. Saturday.

A 1996 Toyota Corolla and a black Audi four-door had reportedly collided together at the intersection. There were two injured passengers in the Corolla, but the driver was nowhere to be found. A female passenger was taken to Western Medical Center in Santa Ana with a suspected concussion. She was apparently not wearing a seat belt, Lt. Dale Birney said.

As police investigated the crash, they found out the Corolla had been reported stolen. Birney said the only description police were able to get from witnesses was that the female driver was in her 20s and had blond hair. She is suspected of felony hit-and-run, and police are conducting a stolen-car investigation.
