One man was arrested after a series of crashes that ended with four people injured and a scuffle with police early Wednesday, July 11.

The crash occurred at about 4 a.m. at First and Fairview streets and involved three vehicles and a bicyclist. A Nissan Cube and Honda sedan both ran a red light in a possible road-rage incident, said Santa Ana police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna, both striking a truck.

“It was thrown about 60 to 80 feet,” Bertagna said. “Then the white car veers … and hits a guy on a bike waiting on the corner.”

The Cube’s driver hit a wall and ran into a nearby ice cream-manufacturing business. He tells pursuing officers that an employee at the business who doesn’t speak English is the driver of the Cube, Bertagna said, but the employee indicates otherwise and officers don’t believe the suspect.

“He fights with them, and they Taser him,” the corporal said.

The man, who Bertagna said might have been involved in a previous crash, was arrested.

Two people in the white car, the bicyclist and the driver of the truck were hospitalized as trauma patients. Their injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.
