LOCAL : Stanton Woman Dies in Car Crash

From Times staff and wire service reports

A 64-year-old Stanton woman was killed this morning in a car crash that sent debris crashing through the front of a fast-food restaurant in Anaheim.

The accident occurred at 8:06 a.m. when a car driven by a 16-year-old male collided with a Buick driven by Lois Ann Arnold at Ball Road and Dale Street. The cars apparently “went up into the air,” Sgt. Karl Foncea said. When they landed, a motorized cart “catapulted out of the trunk” of Arnold’s car and into a Jack-in-the-Box restaurant, shattering the door.

Arnold was dead on arrival at Humana Hospital West Anaheim. The unidentified teen-ager was taken to UCI Medical Center with minor injuries.

Foncea said the motorized cart and a placard in Arnold’s car indicated she was handicapped. Restaurant Manager Yvonne Hudecky said that normally the Jack-in-the-Box is full of students from Dale Middle School at that hour. “Thank God this is not a school day,” she said. No one in the restaurant was injured.
