SCSQUARED halfBy Eric Heinz 

A woman in her mid-20s struck a tree and a road sign about 8:40 a.m. on Saturday morning on the 800 block of Avenida Pico and was transported from the scene to Mission Hospital, according to Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Steve Concialdi.

The vehicle she was driving was described as an “older van,” Concialdi said. The woman received trauma injuries to her face and had a decreased level on conciousness.

“A number of people came out to help prior to our paramedics arriving, including an off-duty OCFA firefighter who was at the scene when it happened,” Concialdi said. “There was a pretty big crowd of people out there.”

Concialdi said they are unsure at this time about what may have caused the crash. Further details will be provided once they are available.
