Huntington Beach police and fire departments rushed out to 17th Street next to Huntington Beach High School on Wednesday morning after receiving a call that two cars were involved in a traffic accident, where a driver was believed to be under the influence of alcohol.
Authorities found two cars that sustained heavy damage: an overturned maroon sedan with the driver trapped inside and a silver sedan about 30 yards away, its front end smashed in and a body partially ejected through the front windshield.
A teenage female was found lying in the middle of the street, motionless and covered in blood after being ejected from the overturned vehicle. Bottles of beer were found in the other car, with the driver still conscious, an officer with a microphone said.
Students from the high school lined both sides of 17th Street and watched the reenactment of a DUI crash, a production put on by the Every 15 Minutes program.
