That crash story is sad.  Grandmother driving her daughter and 2 young grandchildren home and the Grandmother is killed while the daughter and grandchildren are hospitalized.  Even if they come out of this their lives are forever changed.  Everyone will be traumatized and the kids will probably have nightmares.

The suspect from Costa Mesa looks like he's an Abercrombie model or something.  His life is probably over - if anything positive can come out of this hopefully his friends or other young people will see this and stop speeding/racing/texting/whatever he was doing that drove him into oncoming traffic.

Saw this in the comments.

I know the guy in the mustang. We used to work together. He just bought that car less than a year ago.
I told him many times not too drive lile a maniac. I remember telling him that he will kills someone driving like that. Unfortunately I was right :(

Is Alec a nice guy that just made a mistake (like street racing is a mistake) or is he as huge of a scumbag as he looks? Did he actually think he was cool with his red rims? Did anyone ever tell him he looked ridiculous?

Just read the update on the 2-year old from the accident. Fast n Furious is to blame for this stupid muscle car culture.

Nope...young, stupid, and fast cars have been in play for at least 60 years.

Wasn't there a drag strip back many decades ago around east Irvine
With irwindale shutting down, no more legal places to go that's remotely close

The only one concerns me is the bank robbery, which means this group has somehow targeted Irvine and may have other plans to break into wherever they can get money.

Generally, criminals will target bank branches near entrances to major freeways. The Quail Hill bank is near the 405 freeway.

In Woodbury Town Center, cyress trees around Bank of America are pruned in such a way that they look like they got no pants on - to eliminate hiding spots for bad guys. There is always a security guard with a .375 outside.

The Chase branch has 1.5 inch plexiglass/bulletproof panels all around the counters. Tellers feel like they are in a fish tank. There is no visible security guard at all. Too poor to afford one?

Wells Fargo branch positions itself in a dreadful corner. The right side of ATM's is a scary spot. Every time I visit the ATM's there I find myself taking a secretive defensive stance on my right side. But inside the branch, there are quite 2 or 3 tiger-mom like account managers. So we got that covered.

You are literally in one of the safest cities in the United States...I think your risk of being robbed is minimal to non-existent.

Not long ago I was at that Wells Fargo ATM and I swear a guy popped out from behind that right side.  I freaked out and almost punched him out of reflex.  He was a skinny Chinese guy just there to use the ATM - probably took a shortcut walking from Woodbury East but that I thought I was about to be robbed.

Come on, you couldn't take a skinny FCB in a 1 on 1 scrap? He was probably going to the bank to pull out palettes of money for an all-cash transaction @Trevi-OH.  ;D :D ;)

I keed, I keed.

This was in Fountain Valley but one time, ignorantly, went to an ATM pretty late at night.  Some guy was creeping over from the parking lot.. Not sure if he was going to do anything but a cop car came up and honked their siren a little.  He was just walking so cops didn't do anything but who knows.  Never again.

I'm more afraid of the fcb drivers.  Especially if they think they're still China where traffic lights and lane assignments are optional.

Isn't this most non-US/Canada countries? :)
