EL SEGUNDO, Calif.—Authorities provided more details June 23 about a multi-vehicle crash on a freeway off-ramp near LAX that killed two teenagers and sent another to a hospital.
California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers responded just before 3 a.m. Saturday to the Nash Street off-ramp on the westbound Glen Anderson (105) Freeway, where they learned a vehicle flew off the ramp and crashed into three vehicles in the LAX FedEx Air Freight employee parking lot, CHP Officer Sergio Garcia told City News Service.
A 2016 Lexus was speeding westbound on the freeway and failed to negotiate the off-ramp, going over the concrete barrier and falling to the parking lot below, according to a CHP statement.
The Lexus fell onto a parked Ford Mustang, causing it to overturn and continue in a northwesterly direction into a Toyota Tacoma and then a Ford F-150 pickup truck. None of the three other vehicles was occupied.
The driver and one passenger inside the Lexus were pronounced dead at the scene. A second passenger, a 19-year-old man, was rushed to a hospital with moderate injuries.
The two men killed in the crash were identified as 19-year-old Bryan Bolanos and 18-year-old Carlos Sicairos, according to the Los Angeles County Office of Medical Examiner.
Mr. Bolanos and Mr. Sicairos were residents of Moreno Valley, according to the CHP.
The CHP’s West Los Angeles office urged anyone with information about the crash to call them at 310-642-3939 or, after business hours, the agency’s Los Angeles Communication Center at 323-259-3200.
