On Friday night, a teenager was hit by a car while standing outside of a house party and was seriously injured. Though his recovery is taking its time, he is remaining positive.
Caleb Taylor resides in a Santa Ana hospital ICU right now rather than in Irvine, where his family lives. His injuries threaten his athletic lifestyle where he excels in baseball because he was the unlucky victim of a random crash.
The Irvine Police responded to a call that came in around 10:15 p.m. Friday night, claiming that there was an accident at the intersection of West Yale Loop and Stone Creek North.
According to Taylor’s friend’s reports, Taylor was outside attempting to break up a fight that was ongoing when a vehicle intentionally drove into the crowd.
The driver was allegedly driving at high speeds. Including Taylor, his actions injured three people.
Police apprehended the suspect, but he has been released after posting his bail. He is expected in court on Tuesday.
Taylor is keeping his spirits up despite his current situation. He has undergone one surgery and is waiting to learn what more is required.
