A 24-year-old passenger in a van involved in a fatal accident on Laguna Canyon Road remained in critical condition Sunday, while the van's driver succumbed to injuries suffered in the three-car collision, authorities said.
Edward Delosreyes of Anaheim, who was involved in a head-on collision Friday evening, then was hit by a third car, remained in critical condition at Mission Regional Hospital Medical Center in Mission Viejo, hospital officials said.
The driver of the van, Joe Tovar, 59, of Placentia, died at 12:50 a.m. Saturday at Saddleback Community Hospital of injuries suffered in the head-on collision, the California Highway Patrol reported.
The accident occurred about 6:20 p.m. Friday, when a southbound car driven by Kelvin Price, 33, of Laguna Niguel swerved into the northbound lane, striking the van. Delosreyes and Tovar were thrown from the vehicle and Delosreyes was hit by another northbound van driven by Keith Ring, 24, of Anaheim, CHP officials said.
