PALA, CA (June 12, 2023) – On Monday night, Manh Bangvan Nguyen lost his life after a DUI car crash on State Route 76. The accident took place on May 29th, at around 9:10 p.m., along State Route 76 at Magee Road. According to reports, a woman traveling eastbound on State Route 76, in a Toyota Camry veered into the westbound lane of the highway east of Magee Road, and crashed into a Hyundai Santa Fe. As a result, the crash caused a series of crashes involving a Lexus GS-350 and a Jeep Laredo. Unfortunately, the Lexus driver, 65-year-old Fountain Valley resident Manh Bangvan Nguyen, died at the scene. Meanwhile, medics took the drivers of the Toyota and the Jeep, along with two other occupants of the involved vehicles, to the hospital for treatment of minor to moderate injuries.
