Teen killed in violent car crash that injured four others
A teen was killed when the car he and four other passengers were riding in crashed violently early Saturday morning. The teen killed was identified as 17-year-old Daniel Solis, of Downey.
The crash happened shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday on Rosecrans Ave. and Lakewood Blvd. According to a statement from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the driver hit a curb and wrought-iron fence, causing the vehicle to roll over onto its roof, and then crash into a tree.
It’s suspected the driver was traveling at a high rate of speed when he lost control. Alcohol is also being considered a contributing factor.
Four out of five people were ejected from the car during the crash. All were taken to nearby hospitals. Solis was listed in critical condition, but later died. The other four passengers were all listed in stable condition and are expected to make a full recovery and survive.
No other information of those involved in the accident was readily available, officials said.
The driver of the car, 22-year-old Eddie Solis and brother to the deceased Daniel Solis, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and vehicular manslaughter, according to authorities.
The crash remains under investigation by officials.
