Pickup Driver Shot on Way to Work in Santa Ana

A man on his way to work was hospitalized Friday morning after he was shot in the face while driving a pickup in Santa Ana.

The victim crashed his work truck head-on into a tree on Edinger Avenue after the shooting, which might be a random attack, Santa Ana police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said. The man, a supervisor for a piping company, is expected to survive.

The driver was the only person in the pickup.

Police suspect another driver or someone on a street corner shot randomly or missed another target, Bertagna said.

"We're looking for witnesses and video," he said.
