A 19-year-old girl identified as Ceilo Romero Rojas killed after getting struck by a vehicle in southwest Los Angeles on Thursday, September 24.
The fatal accident occurred near Western and Normandie Avenue at approximately 3:40 a.m. The victim was riding a 2005 Toyota on the roadway when it became disabled in the Nos. 1 and 2 lanes following a crash. She and the driver got out of the car and went towards the right shoulder of the freeway then went back to their vehicle to recover personal items.
That was when the 19-year-old victim was struck by a 2004 Toyota passing through the roadway. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The reason why the Toyota struck the victim is currently unclear. Two other victims were rushed to the hospital. They sustained minor to moderate injuries from the accident.
Fatal Crash Investigation is Underway
Local authorities are currently investigating the case. People that can give additional information about the crash are urged to contact the CHP South Los Angeles Area office at 424-551-4000. Some of the common causes of car accidents are distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving, reckless driving, bad weather, wrong-way driving, and failure to observe traffic laws. Facing cases like this alone can be quite challenging. With the help of an experienced Los Angeles County personal injury attorney, the victims won’t need to deal with the stressful paperwork that comes with filing a claim.
Attorneys have the resources that can help them prove the negligence of the liable party. They can utilize their resources to re-interview important witnesses, review relevant surveillance footage from the scene, and obtain phone and texting records of the responsible party. Attorneys can also conduct an independent investigation to help the victims receive the justice they deserve.
