The crash occurred shortly after 5:30 p.m. in the 11000 block of North Reseda Boulevard.

Authorities initially stated that the crash had resulted in the death of one teen and the injuries of nine additional people, six of whom were critically injured.

According to police, a 2007 Honda CRV traveling southbound on Reseda Boulevard crossed over the double yellow lines, struck a vehicle traveling north, then plowed into a second vehicle in the northbound lanes.

The collision also caused damage to a parked car.

The tragic situation was made worse by a police announcement on Sunday morning that a second young person, one of those hurt on Saturday, had passed away from her injuries.

Magnus R., the teen who was pronounced dead at the scene and was identified by his family and the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner, was 16 years old, despite initial reports that he was 17.

A GoFundMe has been created to solicit donations for his family.

The LAPD reported that the person who passed away on Sunday was a 14-year-old girl, though her identity has not yet been made public.

According to the authorities, the two teenagers who died were passengers in a CRV that was allegedly moving at a high rate of speed at the time of the collision.

The CRV’s driver is currently in the hospital and will likely be charged after being discharged.

All three occupants of the two additional vehicles involved are anticipated to survive.
