A tragic car accident in Orange killed 30-year-old Lorena Mancinas Wednesday, the Orange County Register reports. 

According to the news article, Mancinas was driving westbound on the 22 at around 4:20 p.m., when another car, driven by Young Woo Lee, 26, switched into Mancinas’ lane and clipped her right rear wheel, causing Mancinas’ vehicle to spin off the roadway and go over the guardrail.  Mancinas was pronounced dead at the scene.

I extend my deepest condolences to the families of all parties involved in this terrible accident.

The Fatality Analysis Reporting System Encyclopedia reports that in 2008 alone there were 34,017 fatal motor vehicle crashes in the United States.  Of these crashes, 18.9% occurred in areas where the speed limit was 60 M.P.H. or higher, as it is on the 22 highway.
