SANTA ANA (CBSLA) — A 24-year-old woman riding a skateboard and pulled by a vehicle was killed at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday, and alcohol may have been a factor leading up to the crash.

The OCFA got a 911 call from a Santa Ana resident that a female skateboarder had fallen on the street in the 2400 block of North Spruce Street, according to a police report.
Paramedics rushed her to UCI Medical Center, where she died from her injuries at 1:59 a.m.
