Three Vehicle Traffic Collision Results in Death for One Driver NR12221kr

Los Angeles: A traffic collision early Monday morning claimed the life of a 21-year-old Simi Valley woman.

On Monday, May 14, 2012, around 6:25 a.m., Brandi Todd  was driving a 2007 Toyota Scion at a high rate of speed northbound on De Soto Avenue, just south of the 118 Ronald Reagan Freeway.  Todd lost control of the Scion and collided with the rear end of a commercial Frito Lay truck, driven by a 38-year-old resident of Winnetka.  The force of the collision caused Todd’s vehicle to spin counter clockwise into the south bound lanes of De Soto Avenue.  

A 63-year-old resident of Canyon Country driving southbound on De Soto Avenue in a 2002 GMC Envoy collided with the Scion.  Both drivers of the Scion and Envoy were transported to local hospitals by LAFD personnel.  Todd died shortly after arriving at the hospital.

Valley Traffic Investigators are searching for additional witnesses to this collision and the events leading up to it.  There were some accounts that described a car, similar to Todd’s car that may have been driving at a high rate of speed as well, just prior to the collision.  

Anyone with information is asked to call Valley Traffic Detectives, Police Officer Larkin at (818) 644-8036.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247).  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
