Authorities say that Sung Lee was traveling east on Summit Park in Irvine when he hit a parked gardening truck. When Lee exited his vehicle to assess the damage, a 16-year-old male driving a Volkswagen Jetta crashed into the two stopped vehicles, pinning Lee between two cars.
Lee was treated at the scene by paramedics and then transported to Western Medical Center in Santa Ana, where he was pronounced dead shortly after arrival. Investigators say that the sun may have been in the Jetta driver’s eyes prior to the accident, and that the investigation into the incident is ongoing.
