2 Compton women died in a car accident. This was not a street takeover: LASD

Authorities have concluded that a fatal double collision in Compton on Sunday night was not connected to a street takeover.

This update was presented at Tuesday’s Compton City Council meeting, just two days after the tragic collision.

“Although the incident is an ongoing investigation, we can confidently share that the two fatalities that occurred at the intersection were not related to the street takeovers,” Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Craig Walker said.

The incident took place at 11:42 PM Sunday, near the intersection with North Wilmington Avenue/West Stockwell Street.

Authorities never confirmed a witness’s account that a sedan was seen drifting around an intersection with a woman hanging from the window. They were still investigating the incident the morning following the crash.

Two women in their sedans were killed when the sedan collided with an SUV travelling in a different direction.

One of the victims had to be ejected due to the impact.

The two women were identified by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office as 20-year-old Michellie Gonzalez from Cudahy and 18-year-old Jennyfer Flores of Long Beach.

“My deepest condolences go out to the families and friends of the individuals who lost their lives in the tragic vehicle collision,” Compton Mayor Emma Sharif stated in Friday’s update about the crash.  

Investigations into the cause of the collision are ongoing.
