LOS ANGELES, CA (March 30, 2021) – A DUI wrong-way crash killed Jasmine De La Cruz along the 110 Freeway in Los Angeles.

The coroner’s office identified the 21-year-old Bellflower woman as one of the victims in the fatal accident on Tuesday.

The incident happened when Jasmine Hope De La Cruz was riding as a passenger in a Toyota sedan. The car was going north on the 110 Freeway near Ninth Street in Los Angeles.

At the same time, a Lexus SUV was traveling south in the northbound lanes of the freeway. The California Highway Patrol said the Lexus then slammed head-on into the other vehicle.

Jasmine De La Cruz and the 21-year-old Downey man driving the Toyota sedan died at the scene. According to the Whittier Daily News and My News LA, officers reported the wreck at 2 a.m.

The wrong-way driver, a 32-year-old man, suffered major injuries as a result of the collision. His passengers, a 32-year-old woman and a 4-year-old boy, sustained moderate injuries upon impact.

Paramedics took all three San Pedro residents to a hospital for treatment. CHP added that the motorist in a Toyota Corolla that later collided with the two vehicles ended up unharmed.

Meanwhile, officers shut down the Nos 3, 4 and 5 lanes of the northbound 110 Freeway at Ninth Street. They also closed the transition roads from both directions of the 10 Freeway to the northbound 110 following the crash.
