Valentina Dola-Sandro, 16, died Saturday when the red Ford Mustang in which she was a passenger in collided with another vehicle. The other vehicle flipped during the crash, witnesses said.

The crash occurred at the intersection of Anaheim Street and Avalon Boulevard around 2:00 a.m. the LAPD said.

Dola-Sandro was sitting in the backseat of the Mustang and was ejected from the vehicle when it crashed, according to the LAPD. She was pronounced dead at the scene. It is unclear if she was wearing her seat belt.

There were four teenagers inside the Mustang at the time of the collision. The three other teens in the Mustang, and the driver of the other vehicle involved in the crash were taken to an area hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

The Mustang was traveling at a high rate of speed and failed to stop at a red light, according to Sgt. Jeremy Duncan of the LAPD. It was not known if the driver of the Mustang has had any charges filed against him at this time.

Students at Torrance High School where Dola-Sandro attended could be seen around campus wearing maroon colored sweatshirts in honor of her.

“It was… her favorite color, so everybody thought we should wear maroon.  It’s also our school color,” Vince Perez, a student at the school told KTLA 5.

Highway 49: Hit-and-Run Head-on Collision in Auburn

Friday morning, August 19, 2011, a person who was driving a white Acura Integra caused a head-on collision on Highway 49 near Auburn. The car accident, which occurred a little before 10 a.m., seriously injured two people who had to be taken to the hospital.

According to the Sacramento Bee, the California Highway Patrol is looking for the hit-and-run driver, and is seeking the public’s help.

What followed was that a 60-year-old woman from Grass Valley was headed southbound on Highway 49, driving a Ford pickup truck in the left lane headed towards Lone Star Road. A 76-year-old man driving a Honda was waiting in the left-turn lane of northbound Highway 49, and preparing to make a left turn onto Lone Star.

The person driving the white Acura was headed westbound on Lone Star Road and abruptly veered onto Highway 49. The Acura traveled across the northbound lanes to the southbound lanes, right in front of traffic.

The woman driving the pickup swerved left and toward the northbound traffic lane. She hit the Honda head on. Both she, and the driver of the Honda were seriously injured. Airlift transported her to Sutter Roseville Medical Center. An ambulance transported the man to Sutter Roseville.

Details from the news story describe the driver of the white Acura as a white male, roughly 20 years old. The California Highway Patrol states the Acura vehicle’s license plate number is 3HXL657.
