On 6-13-14 at approximately at 7:30 AM, the Fountain Valley Police Department responded to the intersection of Edinger Avenue and Ward Street regarding a traffic collision involving a Honda sedan and a Toyota sedan. Officers arrived and found an injured and unresponsive male driver in the Honda.  The driver was identified as 37-year old Jose Baez out of Fountain Valley.  Paramedics transported Baez to a local hospital to treat life threatening injuries.  A licensed juvenile driver and two juvenile passengers in the Toyota were transported to a local hospital to treat minor, non-threatening injuries.  Preliminary investigation revealed the Toyota was making a left turn from eastbound Edinger Avenue to northbound Ward Street, and collided with the Honda travelling westbound Edinger Avenue.  Baez is listed in critical condition at a local hospital.  Preliminary investigation did not show that alcohol or drugs contributed to the collision. The identities of the involved juvenile parties are being withheld at this time as the investigation is on-going.  Any witnesses to the collision are encouraged to contact the Fountain Valley Police Department at 714-593-4484 to provide additional information.
