25-year old Karina Elizabeth Garcia of Irvine turned herself in to the Santa Ana Police Department on October 7th 2019 for her involvement in a hit-and-run which occurred the prior day.

About 8:30PM on October 6th, Santa Ana and Garden Grove Police officers responded to the 2500 block of North Fairview Avenue. An elderly woman had been struck by silver Honda Civic as she and a male companion were crossing Fairview, west to east.

The Honda, heading north, struck her and continued north, leaving the woman lying on the roadway with major internal injuries. The woman received treatment by the responding Orange County Fire Authority personnel before being transported to the ICU Medical Center via CARE ambulance.

Garcia, who reported to the police department accompanied by her lawyer, admitted to hitting the woman on the intersection of Fairview and Trask Avenues and gave officers the location of the involved vehicle. Officers located the car in the city of Irvine and noted the obvious damage it displayed, coinciding with a vehicle-pedestrian collision. The vehicle was secured as evidence.

Garcia was booked for a hit-and-run with injury and for driving with a suspended license.
