Woman Killed in Crash Thursday in Winnetka

WINNTEKA (July 14, 2017)- According to the LA Times, a deadly collision left a young woman dead, two others injured, and a man behind bars following a crash Thursday morning on Roscoe Boulevard.

The collision was reported at 2:05 a.m. on Roscoe Boulevard involving a total of three cars.

Police disclosed that the driver of a Dodge Challenger, Manuel Mejia, 28, of Northridge, had been traveling well over the speed limit before veering into oncoming traffic where he struck a Subaru Impreza followed by a Ford Escape.

Per the LA Times, the Ford Escape ricochet off the road over the street curb directly into both a tree and power pole tragically leaving the driver who is only being identified as a young woman in her 20s with fatal injuries.

2 Passengers in Mejia’s Vehicle Injured

Meanwhile, Mejia had been accompanied by two passengers, one who was seriously injured and rushed to a trauma center while Mejia and the second passenger sustained moderate injuries and were also hospitalized. Neither of Mejia’s passengers has been identified.

The driver of the Subaru was apparently uninjured and declined any treatment, the report added.

At this time, it remains unclear if just reckless driving played a role in the collision or if alcohol or drugs contributing factors.

Los Angeles PD is manning the investigation as more details will likely soon be revealed.


Based on this news report, Miguel Mejia will be held fully liable for this devastating tragedy for causing the collision and the death of the young woman. In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing was indeed a factor, the family of the young woman will have the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the Mr. Mejia seeking compensation for damages including medical expenses, funeral costs, lost future income and loss of love and companionship.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.
