Calvo was behind the wheel of a Jeep that was westbound on Fourth Street when it collided with a southbound Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck at Tustin Avenue, police said. Investigators said he failed to stop for a red light.

Both vehicles flipped over multiple times.

Calvo got out of the Jeep at the same time an off-duty firefighter and his wife, who is a nurse, stopped to help the victims, who were trapped in the pickup truck, which caught fire, police said.
