The Region : Garden Grove Freeway Crash Kills Five
A collision on the Garden Grove Freeway killed five people and left one man hospitalized, police said. The accident in the eastbound lanes near Knott Street led to closure of the freeway for more than seven hours, the California Highway Patrol said. Officers said the crash killed Ramona Bovard, 24, of Garden Grove; Ike Cho, 21, of Anaheim; Joo Kim, 23, of Santa Ana; Eun Kim, 24, of Tustin, and Chung Choi, 28, of Riverside. It could take investigators as much as a week to discover the cause of the crash. But a CHP spokesman said Bovard was speeding east when her car went out of control “for unknown reasons” and struck a car driven by Kwang Kim, 25, of Tustin. Kwang Kim was hospitalized in fair condition and was being investigated “for driving under the influence,” the CHP said.
