In Garden Grove, Woman & Dog Killed by DUI Suspect

On June 23, 2015, an alleged DUI driver was arrested after a fatal collision in Garden Grove that left a woman and her dog dead, according to Garden Grove Police.

At around 9:45 p.m. on Tuesday evening, near the intersection of Faye and Chapman avenues, a woman was riding an adult-sized tricycle with her dog sitting in an attached basket, when she was struck by a pickup truck, according to a news release issued by the Garden Grove Police Department.

In the news release, police officials said that the force of the crash knocked the tricycle down and threw the basket with the woman’s dog, before it landed a short distance from the crash scene.

The victim, who is unidentified, was said to be in her 50s. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Orange County Animal Services transported the dog to a local animal hospital where it was later pronounced dead as a result of its injuries.

The police identified the driver of the pickup truck as R. Faye McLaughlin. She remained at the crash scene and waited for authorities to arrive, according to the police.

Police: Driver Suspected of Driving Under the Influence

The driver allegedly showed signs of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the accident, the release stated. McLaughlin submitted to a field sobriety test and was subsequently arrested at the scene.

McLaughlin is a resident of Santa Ana. She is expected to be booked at Orange County Jail. In the release, police officials stated that she is expected to face a felony DUI charge.

The authorities are continuing to investigate the fatal crash.

The Garden Grove police are reaching out to the community and are asking for the public’s help. Anyone who may have witnessed the collision are asked to contact the department with the information.
