A second person has died in connection with a violent car crash in Anaheim, according to the Orange County coroner’s office, which identified the two people killed on Sunday.
Richard Redfoot, the driver, was one of two males declared brain-dead after the early Saturday morning collision, according to police and coroner’s officials.
The 26-year-old Lakewood resident succumbed to his injuries at UC Irvine Medical Center in Orange shortly after 5 p.m., coroner’s records showed.
Marianne Kasuya, 24, was identified as the woman killed in the crash. She was the front-seat passenger in the car and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Authorities have not provided an update on the condition of the third occupant of the car, who was sitting in the back seat.
Redfoot allegedly sped through a red light and slammed into a tanker truck at the intersection of West Lincoln and South Dale avenues about 1:30 a.m. Saturday, according to Anaheim Police Department Sgt. Wyatt.
The 45-year-old driver of the other vehicle was not injured, he said.
Wyatt told KTLA that investigators found medical marijuana in the car when they searched it after the fatal collision, but did not elaborate on the discovery.
