One person was killed after a tow truck crashed into the back of a parked car Thursday morning, authorities said.
The crash occurred just before 2 a.m., while the Chevrolet Impala was parked along Springdale Street, said Sgt. J. Haught of the Huntington Beach Police Department’s traffic division.
A 77-year-old man and his 13-year-old grandson were sitting in the car just south of McCarthy Street when a 2011 Dodge Ram tow truck crashed into the back of the parked car, according to a statement released by the department.
The driver of the tow truck was not injured, police said. The man was pronounced dead at the hospital, and the boy suffered minor injuries.
Orange County Coroner’s Office officials late Thursday identified the man as Crawford Grant Reeves of Huntington Beach.
