A two-vehicle crash on the 57 Freeway transition to the 22 Freeway left one dead and one seriously injured after their vehicle was rear-ended and overturned early Saturday, March 14th. The deceased victim has been identified as Eric Phan, 34, of Midway City.
The crash occurred around 1:45 a.m. According to authorities, a 2014 BMW 320i driven by Rebecca Munoz, 22, of Santa Ana, rear ended a 2002 Jeep Liberty driven by Neil Raboy, 36, of Huntington Beach. The collision caused the Liberty to jump a cement barrier and fall off the overpass. The vehicle came to rest on its roof. Phan was a passenger in the Liberty.
Raboy was taken to UCI Medical Center with severe head injuries after authorities were able to free him from the overturned SUV. Phan was pronounced dead at the scene. Munoz was not injured in the crash and was arrested at the scene on suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.
