A 25-year-old Huntington Beach man proposed to a 24-year-old woman on the first Saturday in June. She accepted and the two went on a motorcycle ride around the area where they both had grown up to celebrate. The couple was on that ride when a Lexus sedan collided with the motorcycle in what police said was a drunk driving accident.
The man riding the motorcycle was sent to the hospital with both of his legs broken, but he is expected to survive. His fiancée, however, did not survive the accident. She was declared dead at a nearby hospital.
