3 children, 2 adults hit by suspected drunk driver while on bike ride in Garden Grove

Three members of the same family are in critical condition after a suspected hit-and-run driver crashed into the family of 5 as they were on a bike ride in Garden Grove, according to authorities. 

Two adults - a 27-year-old father and 25-year-old mother, were on electric bicycles with their three children - a 7-month-old girl, 5-year-old boy, and 7-year-old girl - being pulled in bike trailers around 7:35 pm. Sunday in the 12300 block of Haser Street at Twin Tree Lane when they were hit by a driver in a 2003 Toyota Camry, officials said.

Witnesses rushed to the scene to help. 

"There were kids on the floor, babies throwing up, there were two babies and then a little boy," one witness said. "It was terrible… bloody… blood everywhere. It didn't look good. It was horrible."

The driver, 29-year-old Ceferino Ramos of Santa Ana, was caught and arrested about a mile away from the scene thanks in part to a witness who saw what happened and followed the suspect's car for over a mile. A sobriety test was administered on Ramos, who was arrested for suspected DUI hit-and-run, according to authorities. Video from the scene showed an open beer bottle that was recovered from inside the car, according to authorities.
