Man turns himself in to Garden Grove Police for causing four-car smashup that injured 2


A man turned himself in to the Garden Grove PD on Wednesday and was arrested on suspicion of felony hit and run for fleeing the scene Sunday of a four-vehicle crash that injured two.

Armando Rosas De La Cruz, 26, of Santa Ana, was booked after Garden Grove PD investigators were able to convince his family and friends to turn himself in, according to a GGPD news release Wednesday.

Around 11:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 21, GGPD officers were dispatched to the 13100 block of Magnolia Street regarding a traffic collision involving an overturned vehicle.

Officers found one person trapped inside a car on its side.

The car that caused the smashup was travelling southbound on Magnolia Street when it sideswiped another vehicle also going southbound.

The primary vehicle lost control and struck two parked vehicles on the west curb and continued southbound where it collided with a tree and an iron gate at an apartment complex.

The suspect fled the scene before police arrived.

A female standing next to the parked vehicle talking to the male driver when the crash occurred was taken to Garden Grove Medical Center. She and the male driver were treated for their injuries.

De La Cruz admitted to committing the hit-and-run, police said. It is unknown, they said, if De La Cruz was driving while impaired.
