Olivia Enriquez and Leland West Killed in Sun Valley Hit-and-Run Crash

 
SUN VALLEY, CA (April 15, 2019) – A two-car crash probably caused by car racing killed two people and injured three on Friday, April 12.
 
The coroner identified one of the victims as 59-year-old Olivia Enriquez. Family members identified the other victim as Olivia Enriquez’s husband of 25 years, Leland West.
 
The accident happened just before 7:30 p.m. at the intersection of Lankershim Boulevard and San Fernando Road.
 
According to Los Angeles police, the male motorist in a dark-colored Dodge Charger was either racing with or driving recklessly alongside a white Dodge Charger eastbound on San Fernando Road when the latter broadsided a Toyota Corolla.
 
Detective Meghan Aguilar said that the driver of the Corolla, who was not involved in the alleged race, tried to turn left onto Lankershim Boulevard when the collision happened.
 
The white Charger came to rest at an intersection. The Corolla stopped on the farther up the road due to the impact from the crash. The Toyota sustained heavy damages and made it difficult for officers to determine the car model, Aguilar stated.
 
The two occupants of the Toyota succumbed to injuries sustained at the scene, according to the agency.
 
Paramedics brought the three occupants of the white Charger to the hospital
 
According to Im, LAPD aimed to arrest the driver of the white Charger, a 25-year-old woman from Pacoima, and book her on suspicion of murder. The driver of the white Dodge showed a willful disregard for human life, LAPD said in a statement.
 
Officials did not intend to arrest the two passengers.
 
The person behind the wheel of the dark Charger continued east on San Fernando Road. He did not stop to assist the injured, LAPD spokesman Tony Im said.
 
Authorities have not yet found Saturday the dark-colored car believed to have been racing with the white Charger.
