A Huntington Beach resident was identified Sunday as one of two women killed in a three-vehicle crash in Westminster last week.

The crash that claimed the lives of Denise Leverenz, 56, of Huntington Beach and Eileen Sayegh, 58, of Anaheim occurred about 4:20 p.m. Thursday at Beach Boulevard and Roosevelt Avenue, according to Westminster police Cmdr. Alan Iwashita and the Orange County coroner’s office.

Sayegh, who died at the scene, was the driver of one of the vehicles involved, while Leverenz was a passenger in another, according to the coroner’s office. Leverenz died at Orange County Global Medical Center in Santa Ana.

“The drivers of the other two involved vehicles were transported to local hospitals for medical evaluation and treatment and are reported to be in stable condition,” Iwashita said.

An SUV was traveling north on Beach Boulevard when it crossed into opposing traffic lanes and collided with a sedan, forcing the sedan into an iron fence, officials said. A third vehicle was unable to avoid the wreck and struck the SUV.
