Newport Beach Woman Charged With Murder After Crash That Killed Parents, Injured 3 Young Children

December 10, 2020 at 4:20 pm
SANTA ANA (CBSLA) — A 22-year-old woman was charged Thursday with two counts of murder in connection with a crash that killed a husband and wife, and injured their three young daughters.

Grace Elizabeth Coleman, of Newport Beach, was arraigned Thursday afternoon via livestream. She’s still hospitalized for injuries sustained during the crash.

Police say Coleman was driving under the influence when her Range Rover crashed into a family of five driving on Newport Coast Drive at about 7:45 p.m. Tuesday. Henry Eduardo Saldana-Mejia, 27, and his wife, 29-year-old Gabriela Andrade, were pronounced dead at the scene. The couple’s young daughters — ages 1, 4, and 5 — were secured in car seats, but were still seriously injured in the crash, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.

“Three young girls are orphans because of the selfish decision of a stranger,” Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer said in a statement. “Children should not have to grow up without their parents because someone decided to make the wrong decision and get behind the wheel while intoxicated.”

The couple’s family said they were on their way to pick up Saldana’s last paycheck at the nearby Pelican Hill resort, where he had been working in housekeeping.

The charges against Coleman include two counts of murder, a count of driving under the influence of alcohol causing bodily injury, a count of driving with a blood alcohol of .08% or more causing bodily injury, and a count of hit and run with injury — all felonies. She also faces three felony enhancements of great bodily injury for the injuries suffered by all three of the couple’s daughters. Coleman has also been charged with a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence of alcohol after her arrest on Aug. 29 in Laguna Beach.

Coleman, who was also hospitalized after the crash, was not driving on a restricted or suspended license because prosecutors had not yet filed a misdemeanor charge against her at the time of Tuesday’s crash. Many misdemeanor cases have also been put on hold amid the pandemic, according to the district attorney’s office.

According to the criminal complaint, Coleman ran a red light immediately before the crash. She was arrested after trying to leave the scene on foot, police said.

Coleman had a blood alcohol concentration of more than .20, after initially refusing a police officer’s request she submit to a breath and urine test, the criminal complaint said.

A judge revoked Coleman’s bail on Thursday during her arraignment. If convicted as charged, Coleman faces a maximum sentence of 34 years and eight months to life in state prison.

5 bicyclists killed, 3 injured in crash on Nevada highway


Dec. 10, 2020 Updated: Dec. 10, 2020 4:58 p.m.



BOULDER CITY, Nev. (AP) — Five bicyclists were killed and three others injured in a crash Thursday involving a box truck on U.S. Highway 95 south of Boulder City, Nevada Highway Patrol officials said.

Authorities said the truck driver remained on the scene and commercial units were called to inspect the vehicle’s brakes, tires and overall function following the 9:40 a.m. crash.

Nevada Department of Transportation spokesman Tony Illia said the truck allegedly hit a safety escort vehicle that was following the group of about 20 bicyclists. Officials had initially reported that four people were injured, not including those who died.


One of the surviving cyclists said a handful of riders were trying to circumvent strong winds by coasting behind the safety vehicle.

The cyclists were struck from behind by the truck after it crossed into the bicycle lane for an unknown reason, according to authorities.

Highway Patrol officials said the driver wasn’t believed to have been impaired at the time of the crash. The driver's name wasn't immediately released.


Video from the scene showed a white box truck stopped on the side of the highway with front-end damage.

Authorities said five bicyclists died at the scene. Their names weren’t immediately released.

They said one of the injured bicyclists was airlifted to a hospital in critical condition while another was transported by ambulance and was in serious condition. A third bicyclist suffered minor injuries.

Michael Anderson was one of the cyclists who wasn’t injured. He said the group of friends was gearing up for a nearly 130-mile ride traversing parts of Nevada and California as they have done for the past 15 years......................

That's on the route I take between Vegas and AZ. Speed limit is 80 mph on stretches of that road. Doesn't seem like the smartest place to ride a bike.

i'm pretty sure they will drop the murder charge, especially since she hadn't been charged for her august dui yet. A friend of mine had a prior dui in CA and got 15 years for dui manslaughter. Not sure how many years he will actually do.

fuck that there are plenty of people who don’t deserve second chances. especially if this was her second dui in 3 months
Nah everyone deserves a second chance. 3 months? Sounds like shes still in the throws of addiction. Before all the feelings not facts people get mad at me, she should be in jail for a long time just not her entire existence.
