One woman is dead and seven others are injured following a three-vehicle accident in Garden Grove. The accident on the westbound 22 Freeway just east of Brookhurst Street was reported just after 11 p.m. Friday.

The California Highway Patrol says three cars smashed together, sending one of them flipping through the air. All three cars sustained heavy damage.

Six people, including 51-year-old Gale Rosa, were transported to local hospitals in critical condition. Rosa, a resident of Los Angeles, later died from her injuries at UCI Medical Center.

Two others suffered moderate injuries in the crash.

The cause of accident is under investigation.
