Single-vehicle crash leaves a Pomona woman dead and a man hurt in Garden Grove

GARDEN GROVE — A woman died and a man was injured in a solo-vehicle crash in Garden Grove on Sunday, authorities said.

The deceased passenger was identified as Salena Hernandez, 41, of Pomona, said Supervising Deputy Coroner Larry Esslinger.

The crash was just before 6 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of Brookhurst Street and Trask Avenue, the Orange County Fire Authority reported.

The man and woman were in a northbound vehicle on Brookhurst when they crashed into a pole, Garden Grove police Lt. Carl Whitney said.

Hernandez was pronounced dead at the scene, Whitney said.

The 42-year-old man behind the wheel, whose identity was not immediately released, was hospitalized in critical condition but was expected to survive, he said.

Whitney said the driver had just passed through a green light, but then veered to the right for an unknown reason and slammed into a traffic signal pole.

Traffic investigators will be examining the accident to determine if speed was a factor, as well as drugs and/or alcohol.
