A man died in Fullerton on Saturday afternoon after his car collided with another vehicle and rolled over, police said.
At about 4:45 p.m., Fullerton police officers arrived at Brookhurst Street and Commonwealth Avenue, responding to a call of a three-car collision, Sgt. Jon Radus said.
They found that a 1982 Chevrolet Blazer and a 1997 Ford Ranger had collided.
The driver of the Chevrolet died after he was ejected when the SUV rolled an unknown number of times. He was identified as La Mirada resident Lawrence Kiehl, 62.
A preliminary investigation showed that the Chevrolet was headed westbound on Commonwealth when it collided with the Ford, which was going southbound on Brookhurst, Radus said. The Chevrolet rolled an unknown number of times, ejecting the driver.
The car then side-swiped a Toyota Sienna.
The 23-year-old driver of the Ford and the driver of the Toyota were not injured.
“It appears that the driver of either the Ford or the Chevrolet ran a red light,” Radus said in a statement. “However, it is unknown which driver did at this point in the investigation. It does not appear that alcohol nor drugs are a factor in the collision.”
The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information about the collision is asked to contact the Fullerton Police Department’s Traffic Bureau at 714-738-5313. Those wishing to provide information anonymously can call the Orange County Crime Stoppers at 855-TIP-OCCS.
