Porsche Speedster, winner of the '63 E-Production SCCA National Sports Car Championship, now a wreck. Pot smoking driver of a Toyota Corolla collided with it, head on, killing the English prof /Porsche passenger, severely injuring the owner/restorer/driver

the police say it was a head on collision, that the Toyota driver was East bound, and the Porsche West bound, and that the Toyota went over the median, so for that to be true, the force of the impact was so much that the cars spun about 90 degrees, and pushed the Porsche onto the sidewalk.

Update: 03/29/2016 The DUI suspect has 3 prior DUI convictions
Update: Apr 20th
Latest News from Jon's brother that he has been moved to rehab and physical therapy.
He only has activity 3 hours a day although can accept visitors from 10am to 10pm.
He is not yet speaking, but responding well
Update: May 2nd
Jon's father, who has Power Of Attorney has created an "allowed visitors" list. We can't just drop by for a visit without first getting his consent, just be aware you can't "drop in" without checking with him first. Jon has not been told about Amanda yet, so anyone planning a visit please be mindful of that fact.

impossible to believe from these photos that the collision was head on, and not a t-bone. But the Porsche was certainly traveling on this road and there is nothing on the other side of the road to be driving from. (Bottom of the overhead photo)

There will be a celebration of life for Amanda in the Campus Theater at Fullerton College on Sunday May 1st at 1pm. It is being initiated by students who wish to pay tribute to Amanda and the effect she had on their lives.
