The driver of a car that started a six-car crash in Huntington Beach Tuesday has died from injuries suffered in the crash.

Martin Espinoza, 55, of Huntington Beach, was pronounced dead at 3:25 a.m. Wednesday at UCI Medical Center in Orange.

Just after 2 p.m. Tuesday, Espinoza was driving his 1994 Dodge Intrepid northbound on Brookhurst Street approaching Adams Avenue and failed to stop in time, police said.
