Los Angeles: On October 1, 2004, at about 2:10 p.m., a double fatal vehicle traffic collision occurred between a red Chevy Camaro and white Toyota Tacoma pick-up in Foothill Area.

The Camaro had just left Village Christian School with three 17 year-old male students when the driver became involved in the collision.

The passengers in the right front and rear seats of the Camaro died at scene due to massive blunt force trauma. They have been identified as Christopher Oliver and Nicholas Roth. The driver of the Camaro was transported to Holly Cross Hospital by Los Angeles Fire Department Paramedics and was listed in serious condition with a skull fracture.

The driver of the Tacoma, 22 year-old Con Ung, a resident of Rosemead, was transported to Los Angeles County University of Southern California Medical Center. He was treated for facial fractures and lacerations, including neck, back and chest pain.

After an extensive investigation it has been determined that a street race did not occur. Evidence substantiates that the driver of the 1996 Chevy Camaro was driving in excess of the posted speed limit. On Tuesday, November 23, 2004 at 3:00 p.m., the driver of the Camaro was arrested for 602 WIC/192 (C) (1) PC- Felony Manslaughter. Additional charges may be filed by the District Attorney’s Office.
