Weekend update: One fatal traffic collision and two DUI arrests

Fatal traffic collision: On Oct. 7, 2017, at approximately 2:35 a.m., officers and Costa Mesa Fire & Rescue medics responded to a major injury traffic collision involving a Honda Civic versus a tractor trailer at Fairview Road and South Coast Drive. Medics treated the driver of the vehicle at the scene and later transported him to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Per standard procedure, the Costa Mesa Police Department Major Accident Investigation Team responded to the scene to conduct an investigation. That is currently all the information we are releasing on this incident.


On Oct. 7, 2017, at approximately midnight, Kyle Bosson, 22, Costa Mesa, was driving eastbound on Baker Street and drifted into oncoming westbound traffic causing a head-on traffic collision with one vehicle carrying two occupants. Those victims sustained injuries, including a facial injury to one of them. The other victim, who was pinned inside the car, suffered a fractured leg and had to be extracted by Costa Mesa Fire & Rescue. Bosson was determined to be driving under the influence of alcohol and was arrested.


Two DUI arrests: On Oct. 8, 2017, at about 1:49 a.m., a citizen witnessed Jeremy Sharrock, 31, Costa Mesa, collide with a city traffic signal pole at 17th Street and Newport Avenue. The witness followed Sharrock a short distance before losing sight of him. Another witness saw Sharrock at Westminster Avenue and Cabrillo Street. CMPD officers responded to the traffic collision and conducted a DUI investigation. Sharrock was then arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. The pole was undamaged, but Sharrock’s truck suffered damage from the traffic collision. We’d like to acknowledge the vigilant witnesses who saw something and said something by calling law enforcement.

As evidenced this weekend, DUIs still occur. CMPD would like to remind everyone not to drink and drive. It endangers lives and it’s not worth it. There are options out there including Uber, Lyft, taxi services, as well as, sober friends and family. Stay safe and keep your community safe.
