GARDEN GROVE — A woman was left with left-threatening injuries in an automobile collision and the other driver attempted to leave the scene of the accident.
29-year-old David Colon was arrested and is being held at Orange County Jail. He faces charges of driving while impaired and also fleeing the scene.
The incident occurred on December 5th. When police arrived a 55-year-old woman was lying in the road. A witness reported that a car had struck her and fled.
