German Castro Salguero Fatally Struck in Los Angeles Accident near Stadium Way
LOS ANGELES, CA (February 7, 2021) – Saturday morning, German Castro Salguero, 37, died in a traffic crash on 110 Freeway and Stadium Way.
The California Highway Patrol revealed that at about 1:10 a.m., a 2018 Honda Civic was disabled.
This initial incident happened in the No. 3 northbound lanes south of Stadium Way. Thus, the occupants went out and stood by the side of the car.
Meanwhile, as a 2014 Ford Fiesta approached the disabled Civic, a 2017 Ford Mustang hit the Ford Fiesta. As a result, the Fiesta was pushed, which led to hitting a pedestrian.
The officials confirmed that the pedestrian suffered fatal injuries.
Moreover, the 38-year-old female driver of the Ford Fiesta suffered back pain. Thus, responders took her to the Los Angeles County+USC Medical Center with minor injuries.
At this time, the authorities haven’t disclosed the condition of the Mustang driver. However, they identified that the driver as female. Also, they urged anyone with information about the vehicle’s “driver or passenger” to call them.
Also, the authorities later revealed the victim fatally hit by Ford was German Castro Salguero, of Los Angeles.
The events that have led up to the crash remain under active investigation. By 7:45 a.m., all lanes have reopened.
Meanwhile, the CHP urged anyone with information to contact 213-744-2331.
