The trial of a Huntington Beach man accused of driving while using a suspended license and injuring another driver began Wednesday at the North Justice Center in Fullerton, according to the Orange County district attorney's office.
Oscar Paz, 32, was allegedly speeding on the Garden Grove (22) Freeway in his Volkswagen Jetta on Dec. 11 when he rear-ended a Nissan Pulsar driven by a 66-year-old man, prosecutors said.
The collision caused the victim's vehicle to thrust across the freeway, hitting the center divider. Paz allegedly exited the freeway, parked his car in a strip mall and fled on foot, prosecutors said. He then called his girlfriend to pick him up.
