A man in his 20’s is now in the hospital recovering from critical injuries he received in a roll-over accident that crushed the roof of his vehicle. That accident was reported Thursday morning around 11:00 a.m. on the I-215 Orange Show offramp.

Simentel gave details of the white Ford Focus and how the driver sustained a large gash on his head. He also stated that the driver kept saying that his girlfriend was in the vehicle with him, but Simentel and the other motorist never saw a female passenger.
