A woman died and a man was injured in a solo-vehicle crash in Garden Grove, authorities said Monday.

The deceased passenger was identified as Salena Hernandez, 41, of Pomona, said Supervising Deputy Coroner Larry Esslinger.

The crash was just before 6 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of Brookhurst Street and Trask Avenue, the Orange County Fire Authority reported.

The man and woman were in a northbound vehicle on Brookhurst when they crashed into a pole, Garden Grove police Lt. Carl Whitney said.

Hernandez was pronounced dead at the scene, Whitney said.

The driver was transported to a hospital, he said.

Traffic investigators will be examining the accident to determine if speed was a factor, as well as drugs and/or alcohol.
