Allen Yangkaou Lee Fatally Injured In Irvine Hit-And-Run Crash

Allen Yangkaou Lee killed in hit-and-run crash in Irvine.

Irvine, CA (May 15, 2024) The community of Irvine was shocked as news spread of a hit-and-run crash that would eventually claim a life. 67-year-old Allen Yangkaou Lee received life-threatening injuries in this collision. He held on for a few days at the hospital, before succumbing to his injuries on Monday, May 13th. The driver who caused the collision fled the scene following the accident, reports indicated.

It all happened on Thursday, May 8th at the intersection of Culver Drive and Trabuco Road. Lee was heading north on Culver Road in a  2004 Toyota Corolla sedan, approaching Trabuco Road at approximately 4:30 p.m. As he went through the intersection on a green light, a Honda Civic ran a red light and continued through the intersection at the same time. The civic pulled out directly in front of Lee’s Toyota. Lee swerved in an attempt to miss the Honda and, in doing so, the Toyota began to roll and finally landed on its roof. The driver of the Honda didn’t stop, but instead, continued down the road until they were out of sight.
