Grandmother Killed in Chula Vista Crash Identified as Martha Bertha Villalobos Romo, Alonso Piña Arrested

 
CHULA VISTA, CA (June 6, 2021) – Saturday night, Martha Villalobos Romo, 57, died in a wrong-way crash on L Street and Third Avenue.
 
According to the Chula Vista Police Department, the incident occurred just after 6:00 p.m. Reports confirmed that a Ford Mustang driver and a driver in another unidentified car raced one another on L Street.
 
The authorities added that the Mustang then drove east in the westbound lane. Indeed, the Mustang driver continued driving the wrong way on Third Avenue.
 
Upon entering the intersection, the wrong-way driver failed to yield at a red light. Eventually, the Mustang crashed head-on with a bystander woman driving a Nissan Altima.
 
Police identified the driver illegally street-racing Alonso Piña, 22.
 
They arrested the perpetrator, who only sustained minor injuries in the accident.
 
A CVPD sergeant clarified that the San Diego woman didn’t participate in the suspected street racing.
 
Then, two other vehicles driving behind the Altima crashed into the bystander. Then, the other two vehicles crashed into each other.
 

Aftermath of Chula Vista Street-Racing Crash

 
Responders transported the parties involved in the crash, including the Mustang driver to local hospitals. Their injuries range from minor to moderate injuries.
 
Authorities confirmed Ms. Villalobos Romo died at the scene, while her two grandchildren who rode in the backseat were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
 
Meanwhile, the other vehicle that had been racing with the Mustang wasn’t involved in the crashes. Thus, the driver fled the crash scene.
 
As a result of the incident, the authorities closed Third Avenue, from K to Moss streets during the investigation. They also shut down L Street from Third to Fourth avenues.
 
Villalobos Romo’s daughter, Stephanie Ramirez, remembers her mother “an amazing mother, grandmother, and daughter,” as she wrote on the decedent’s GoFundMe page.
