Huntington Beach, CA (March 9, 2022) – Two teenage brothers lost their lives in a car wreck in Huntington Beach on Monday morning, March 7. The collision took place at approximately 8:15 a.m. at the intersection of Yorktown Avenue and Newland Street.

Sources say the teens were riding in a 1990 Ford F-250 when it collided with a city-owned 2018 Chevrolet Silverado. The F-250 then collided with a pole nearby. 

The brothers were trapped in the wreckage at the scene and had to be extricated by firefighters. Both were promptly transported to area medical centers where one of the brothers passed away. The other was listed in critical condition, but later succumbed to his injuries. 

The driver of the Silverado, identified as a 38-year-old male, did not sustain any injuries in the crash. The man was a city employee. 

Police continue to investigate the circumstances of the accident. 

We would like to extend our sincere condolences to the families impacted by this tragic collision.
