Ashley Gregorio and Delila Rangel Hospitalized, Jazmin Torres Involved in High-Speed Hit-and-Run Collision at South Hoover Street and West Florence Avenue
LOS ANGELES, CA (December 27, 2018)– Two 9-year-old girls are fighting to survive after a hit-and-run street racing crash left them hospitalized last Sunday.
The incident unfolded around 9 p.m. Police said a black Chevy Camaro was bearing down the road and plowed into a vehicle before striking a utility pole. Inside that second car were 9-year-old Ashley Gregorio and Delila Rangel.
It appears the Chevy Camaro was racing a black Ford Mustang, both cars traveling at a high rate of speed; however, the driver of the black Ford Mustang failed to stop and render aid.
Jazmin Torres, Ashley’s mother, was driving the girls in South LA when her car was hit by the Chevy. A 39-year-old man driving the Camaro was arrested while Delila underwent four surgeries and is still in the Intensive Care Unit with a brain injury. Meanwhile, Ashley is slowly improving.
Police are offering up to $25,000 reward for anyone who knows about the Ford Mustang driver’s whereabouts.
