CAR CRASH: Woman Reported Missing, Found Dead in Whittier Crash
August 17, 2010
La Habra – A 47-year-old woman who was reported missing by her family was found trapped inside her vehicle as it crashed into a tree in Whittier, reports said.
Armida Preciado’s adult child called the authorities at around 10 pm and reported that she was missing only more than two hours after she left the house. The family was worried as she failed to continue taking her medication for an unknown condition.
Reports indicate that Preciado was not wearing seatbelt when her 2006 black Nissan pickup plowed into a tree at around the same time that she was reported missing. She was extricated from her vehicle and was taken to a hospital where she later died.
Authorities are investigating the cause of the accident.
