Two Teenagers Killed in Street Race

 

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 an illegal street race with a late model Ford F-150 pick-up.

As the two vehicles raced eastbound on La Tuna Canyon Road, the driver of the Camaro lost control and skidded across the double yellow lines into on-coming traffic. The Camaro collided with the Tacoma pick-up traveling westbound on La Tuna Canyon Road. The Ford F-150 that was engaged in the illegal street race with the Camaro fled the scene.

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.

The Ford F-150 was described as tan or champagne in color with chrome wheels. The name of the driver of the Chevrolet is being withheld due to his age. This investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information is requested to call Valley Traffic Detectives, at 818-756-8381. On weekends and during off-hours, call the 24-hour toll free number at the Detective Information Desk, at 1-877-LAWFULL (1-877-529-3855).
