A 36-year-old woman died and a man was critically injured after an off-ramp accident in Orange Tuesday night.
Around 9:15 p.m., a 2008 Honda Accord crashed into a brick wall at the Chapman Avenue off-ramp on the I-5 North freeway.
According to the police report, the front-end of the vehicle was severely crushed. The driver had to be extricated from the vehicle.

The passenger was pronounced dead at the scene.
CHP officials are still investigating the cause of the accident.
While the average speed limit on a freeway is 65 mph in California, the recommended speed for an off-ramp is 35 mph. A lower rate of speed reduces the risk of losing control of your vehicle. Despite following the set speed limit, accidents can still occur.
