Driver who died when car flipped in Orange I.D.’d as Sun City man
A man who died Christmas Eve after his car hit an embankment and flipped over in Orange has been identified.
Joe Ramirez, 46, of Sun City was driving an Audi sedan headed westbound on Santiago Canyon Road when he lost control of the car. On approaching Jamboree Road, the car struck a raised embankment on the north side of the street and overturned.
“We believe speed to be a factor in the collision,” Orange police Sgt. Phil McMullin said.
McMullin said police didn’t know if alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash.
