Officers with the Santa Ana Police Department said they received several calls from people reporting a crash in the 800 block of South Main Street. The calls started coming in around 2:08 a.m. on Sunday morning, officers said.

A pickup truck was heading south on Main Street when the driver lost control and slammed into a Palm tree. The vehicle then hit a pole and came to a stop.
