South Los Angeles-Young Mother Of Two Killed By Suspected DUI Driver In Crash Along Crenshaw Boulevard
A 26-year old young mother of two was killed in a two vehicle DUI crash on Tuesday morning, June 4, 2019, in Hyde Park in south Los Angeles. The accident sent two vehicles into parked vehicles and a power pole. The driver of one of the vehicles was arrested under the suspicion of DUI. Jasmine Gonzalez, 26, had just picked up her friend, Terry Benton, from work on Tuesday. Gonzalez dropped off Benton in his house at 4900 Crenshaw Boulevard around 12:30 am so the latter could drop off some of his things in his house. Benton heard a loud crash noise while he was inside his house. The vehicle that had two women inside reported crashed into the back of the car of Gonzalez, and hit a third parked car outside Benton’s house. The crash crushed the vehicle of Gonzalez and trapped her inside her vehicle. When paramedics arrived, Gonzalez was unconscious and not breathing. It was not initially clear which of the two women were driving the vehicle that crashed into the car of Gonzalez. The two women were investigated by the authorities for the said incident. According to detectives, alcohol may had been a factor that caused the crash. The female driver who was driving the vehicle that crashed into the car of Gonzalez was expected to be charged with vehicular manslaughter by gross negligence. The identity of the female driver suspected of DUI was not immediately released.
