Three Killed in Fiery Crash in Castaic

CASTAIC, Calif. (July 3, 2024) – A suspected DUI driver is the only survivor of a fiery crash early Wednesday morning that left her three passengers dead at The Old Road in Castaic.

The deadly collision occurred at around 12:30 a.m. on July 3rd, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Police and paramedics from the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the traffic accident on The Old Road, just south of Parker Road.

Upon arrival, they found the vehicle fully engulfed in flames and the victims in the wreckage, police said.

Taylor Roberson, 19, of Redlands, was allegedly speeding when she came to a curve in the roadway. She lost control of her 2010 Toyota Camry while traveling northbound on The Old Road. The car crashed into a tree and light pole, according to NBC 4 News.

CHP officials reported the injured driver was treated by medical personnel and later arrested for driving under the influence, but there will likely be other charges.

The three victims who were riding in the car were pronounced dead at the scene by LAFD crews.

The passengers who died were later identified as Brian White, 22, of Castaic; Quinell Shelton, 15, of San Bernardino,; and Nylah Blanchard, 16, of Adelanto.

There is a Gofundme page for the family of Quinell Shelton.

The case remains under investigation.
