One person was killed and another injured Friday in a two-vehicle crash in Garden Grove that sent one vehicle into a pool and left the other vehicle overturned and up against a brick wall.

The vehicle that crashed into the pool sheared a hydrant and crashed through a brick wall near the corner of Euclid Street and Orangewood Avenue, where the second vehicle rolled over, the Orange County Fire Authority reported about 3:15 a.m.

A news photographer at the scene said the second vehicle came to rest against the wall.

Firefighters from the authority’s heavy rescue truck were using a search camera inside the vehicle in the pool and developing a plan to remove the vehicle from the pool to confirm the number of victims inside, the OCFA said about 3:50 a.m.

Photos from the scene showed the vehicle upside down, with the front half submerged in water.

One patient was declared dead at the scene and a second was taken to a hospital in unknown condition.

Details of what led up to the crash were not immediately available.
