Hacienda Heights Crash Ends in Tragedy for Young Couple

Sunday night resulted in a tragic car crash that sent a vehicle airborne off a busy freeway, killing two teenagers-reported to be boyfriend and girlfriend in Hacienda Heights. L.A. County Fire Dept. reported the crash around 7:15 p.m. around a local Denny’s on South 7th Avenue.

One victim has been identified as George Steward II and the girlfriend has not yet been identified by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office. According to witnesses, a black sedan had been speeding through an off-ramp on the 60 Freeway and lost control hitting a median and being launched into the air.

The vehicle then came into contact with the victim’s white pick-up truck, instantly cleaving off the roof of the truck. The black sedan rolled over from the impact and its passengers were later extracted. CHP confirmed the passengers in the white truck were dead on impact.

CHP is currently investigating the cause of the black sedans accident and no alcohol is believed to be involved in the accident. Families of the victims were called to the scene to confirm the victims were in fact a couple. The families were too devastated to continue questioning.
