Santa Ana, CA (November 8, 2021) – A pedestrian was killed in a traffic accident in Santa Ana in the early morning hours of Friday, November 5. The deceased victim was identified as Arturo Quevedo, 41, of Santa Ana.
Sources indicate that the fatal wreck took place at approximately 1:20 a.m. on Friday in the 800 block of South Fairview Street near South Huron Drive. Information from the Santa Ana Police Department states that Quevedo was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The victim was reportedly in the northbound lanes of Fairview between Highland Street and McFadden Avenue when he was struck by an early 2000s Mercedes Benz sedan, a Toyota Corolla, and a Hyundai.
Only one of the involved drivers, the driver of the Corolla, stayed at the scene to cooperate with authorities and render aid.

We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. No further information is currently available.
Statistics show that around 3,200 people lose their lives in traffic-related incidents throughout the state of California each year, a percentage of them pedestrians. Many more victims are left injured. In many cases, especially in situations involving pedestrians, injured victims require extensive medical treatment for their injuries. Pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable travelers on the road at any given time due to being totally unprotected against the force of other vehicles.
Although we would like to see everyone recover from their accidents without any issues, thousands of people are forced to live with pain and suffering indefinitely. Though there are numerous treatment options available for victims, they come at an extraordinary cost.
