LA HABRA, Calif. (AP) - A second person has died as a result of a collision between a La Habra police car and another vehicle.
Orange County sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino says 55-year-old Charles Antuna died at UC Irvine Medical Center from injuries he sustained in yesterday's crash in La Habra.
His wife, 54-year-old Susanne Antuna, died at the scene of the crash.

The California Highway Patrol says the police car was traveling around 50 mph when it hit the other vehicle at an intersection.
A La Habra police spokeswoman says the officer is hospitalized in stable condition.
