Luvette Monarque Killed in Fiery Crash Involving Speeding Tesla
BERKELEY, CA (June 3, 2019) – A 36-year-old woman died following a fiery crash involving a speeding Tesla in Berkeley on Friday, May 31.
Alameda County Coroner’s Office identified her on Saturday as Luvette Monarque of North Hollywood.
The accident happened at about 11:47 p.m. in the 2200 block of Haste Street. It was triggered by a speeding Tesla that struck a Ford Fiesta and a Dodge pickup truck, according to the police.
The impact of the collision pushed the Fiesta into two parked vehicles and caught fire. According to the officials, Monarque was one of four passengers in the Fiesta and she was sitting in the back seat.
