One Killed, One Injured in Crash with Amazon Truck on Orange Ave in Anaheim, CA

Anaheim, CA — October 26, 2022, a car's passenger was killed in a collision with an Amazon delivery truck on Orange Avenue in Anaheim.

Authorities say the incident happened just before 7:55 p.m. on Orange Ave at Dale Avenue. Investigators released few details about the cause and circumstances of the crash, but said an Amazon truck and a Toyota Prius collided in or by the intersection.

The car's driver and its 60-year-old passenger were taken to an area hospital where the passenger was pronounced dead a short time later. The driver was treated for major injuries. The Amazon driver reportedly received minor injuries.

The investigation is ongoing. No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Amazon Truck Accident in Anaheim

There isn't a lot of clear information yet about how exactly this crash happened or what caused it, but considering its tragic aftermath a careful investigation is obviously in order.

To find the clear facts that tell the whole story police should look into many possible factors:

  • Operator errors like distraction, speeding, or failure to yield at the light-controlled intersection;
  • The conditions of the car and truck, including possible defective parts;
  • Road conditions and design;
  • Visibility, lighting and sightlines;
  • Inclement weather; and
  • Any other traffic in the area.

Checking into those and other details is important, and until more dots are connected it's best not to prematurely guess what picture they'll make. Of course police also might not complete that picture before wrapping up, depending on whether they have the time and resources to really get to the bottom of things. That's why after major accidents--particularly ones involving commercial trucks--I often suggest a second look by independent experts to better ensure the whole truth is found. Whatever is learned, those affected deserve to know that no stone was left unturned. Any further steps would depend on what's discovered.
