MORENO VALLEY (September 2, 2018) – A young man and his pregnant wife were among the four people killed in a traffic collision on the 60 Freeway Friday evening, according to The Press Enterprise and KTLA.
The victims have been identified as 21-year-old Valentino Ramos and 20-year-old Airyana Luna, who was seven months pregnant.
As per the reports, California Highway Patrol said a white 1999 BMW 328i was allegedly racing with another vehicle when its driver lost control of the car. The BMW was heading to Morongo Casino at the time.
The BMW then slammed into the center divider, guardrail, and ultimately rolled over. The accident was reported on August 31 at about 7:30 p.m. near the Redlands Boulevard exit.

Wrongful Death and Personal Injury Lawyer
Based on the news reports, it appears that the driver of the BMW will be held responsible for causing the wreck that led to the death and injuries of several other people. The motorist was apparently driving recklessly and involved in a street race prior to the tragic collision. Aside from that, alcohol is also believed to have played a role in the deadly incident. A thorough investigation will then be conducted to determine the charges to be filed against the suspect and possibly against the other motorists accountable for the alleged street racing.
Pending the results and findings of the investigation for this collision, the surviving families of Mr. Valentino Ramos and Ms. Airyana Luna will be granted the right to pursue a wrongful death claim. Meanwhile, the injured and held not liable for the crash will be granted the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party.
Victims are entitled to seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills, funeral costs, pain and suffering, and lost future income, and loss of love and companionship.
