2 Killed when Car Crashed into Building in Sunland

Posted on April 3, 2018 | Written By: iadminlaw

2 Killed when Car Crashed into Building in Sunland2 people were killed after their vehicle crashed into a commercial building in Sunland, a neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles, Monday morning April 2nd. Los Angeles Fire Department responded to reports of a vehicle that had collided into a commercial building located in the 7800 block of Foothill Boulevard at around 3:12 a.m. First responders arrived to find a man and woman inside an Infiniti Sedan. Authorities pronounced the male victim dead at the scene while a woman, described to be in her mid-30s, was extricated from the Infiniti and was transported to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead shortly after arriving. LAFD confirmed that the commercial building was being used as a trucking dispatch business and doubled as a duplex with residences for the owner. Luckily the Infiniti had crashed into the business side and not the other unit where the family lived. “We heard like a loud explosion. My brother, he sleeps in the front like a couple inches more from where it happened, so we got lucky,” said Alexander Enriquez the son of the business owner. “Thank God I wasn’t in there because I work right in the front, right here’s my desk! I would have died. I feel real fortunate,” said Manasi Dounkian who owns the trucking dispatching business. The Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety determined the stability of part of the building was compromised in the crash.

Los Angeles Police Department released a statement saying that the cause of the crash is under investigation but that evidence at the scene suggests that excessive speeding played a factor in the crash. Surveillance footage from nearby businesses was obtained and investigators are waiting for the results of toxicology test to determine whether alcohol or drugs also played a role in the crash. “As of right now, we are investigating a high rate of speed. Based on the information we have, we do have some skids. They were on the west side of the street. They were traveling westbound, coming around the curve,” explained LAPD Sgt. Bruce Alvarez.
