A Honda Civic exiting the toll road off-ramp hit the Ford Explorer
driven by Cheyenne's mother as she was driving west on El Toro Road,
Sgt. Guy Miller said. The impact was severe enough to force the SUV
off the road.
Cheyenne's 3-year-old sister was taken to Mission Hospital to be
treated for serious injuries, police said. Her mother and another
sister, who is about a year old, had minor injuries. The driver of
the Honda was taken to Saddleback Hospital with minor injuries.
Hit-and-run drivers sought by police
Police are looking for two men who may have information about a
hit-and-run crash that knocked down a Southern California Edison pole
Sunday morning, causing a power outage that affected 20 homes.
Brett Vondette, 24, of Mission Viejo and Scott Slinger, 29, of
Lake Forest are wanted for questioning, police said. The pair are not
officially considered suspects.
The crash was reported at 4:30 a.m. Sunday in the 2700 block of
Laguna Canyon Road, when a car being driven southbound veered off the
road and sheared off a large section of the pole, police said. The
driver ran away.
The cost of repairing the pole is between $80,000 and $100,000,
Det. Andy Peck said. It took Edison crews two days to fix the pole,
and the work snarled Monday morning traffic on Laguna Canyon Road.
Electrical service was fully restored at about noon on Monday, an
Edison spokesman said.
Anyone with information may call Peck at (949) 497-0370.
