Fund Established for Family of Three Children Killed in Traffic Accident

Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) has announced the establishment of a fund to aid the family of the three children killed in the May 27, 2008 traffic accident at Crenshaw Boulevard and Florence Avenue.

The three children – two boys, Alexis Ayala, 4, and Carlos Luna, 12, and one girl, Tanya Ayala, 7 – were fatally injured when an SUV, which was speeding and did not stop at a red traffic signal, collided into a passenger van on Crenshaw Boulevard and Florence Avenue at about 6 p.m. The impact of the collision caused both vehicles to be engulfed by flames. The two occupants of the SUV died at the scene.

There were four additional cars involved in the traffic accident and the passengers in these vehicles had non-life threatening injuries.

Donations can be made to the Luna Family Foundation, Bank of America Account #2162566318. The fund was established by the Decron Properties Corporation, who currently employs Ignacio Luna, the children’s father.

A private funeral service will be held for the children on Friday, June 6.
