Today's picture perfect afternoon here in the OC has turned into a total nightmare in the enclave of Newport Beach.
Three people are dead, another is fighting for their life, and two others are being treated at local OC hospitals after a massive 10-car pile up took place at the corner of Pacific Coast Highway and Riverside. I just saw some of the images on Eyewitness News here in So Cal and frankly I am stunned that more people didn't get killed.
This has to be one of the most horrific car accidents Newport Beach has seen in a long, long time, if not ever.
Witnesses are still in shock. The entire area of PCH will be closed for many hours between Tustin Avenue and Newport Boulevard.

As soon as the names are released of those involved in the crash by either the Newport Beach Fire Department or the Orange County Coroner I will update my blog.
Not sure if drugs or alcohol played a factor, or any other circumstances at this time, keep you posted and keep the victims in your thoughts and Prayers tonight!
