Second 17-Year-Old Boy Dies in Tustin Rollover Crash

Seven people were in the Infiniti M37 sedan when it crashed Friday afternoon

A second teen died as a result of a single-vehicle rollover crash in Tustin that injured others in the car, authorities said Monday.

Passenger Jason Anguiano, 17, of Santa Ana died at Sunday night at Orange County Global Medical Center in Santa Ana, the coroner's office confirmed Monday morning.

The crash occurred at about 2:50 p.m. Friday in the 16000 block of Legacy Road, across from the Amalfi Apartment complex. Pedro Fuentes, 17, of Santa Ana was also a passenger in the crashed car and pronounced dead at the scene, the coroner said earlier.

Four males and three females were in the Infiniti M37 at the time of the crash, Kurtz said. The injured passengers were identified as two 17-year-old boys and two 17-year-old girls. The driver, also injured, was identified as a 19-year-old woman, according to the police department.

Note: Earlier reports stated one of the victims was 20 years old.

The Infiniti was westbound on Legacy Road "when it veered off the roadway and collided with a cement post," Tustin police Lt. Robert Wright said.

The vehicle then spun out of control and slammed into a moving van that was legally parked along the eastbound side of the road, Wright said.

"The collision with the moving van caused the Infiniti to roll over," he said.

The injured victims were taken to hospitals, Wright said. The conditions of the surviving patients were not available.

The vehicle involved has seating for up to five people but there were seven people in the crashed car, police said.
