Two Killed in Willowbrook Car Accident
WILLOWBROOK, CA (May 29, 2019) – Two people were killed following a Willowbrook car accident Wednesday night around 6:35 p.m.
The 27-year-old driver of a gray Ford Mustang and a 20-year-old woman in the passenger seat died in the crash. The accident happened at Avalon Boulevard and Rosecrans Avenue, California Highway Patrol said.
A Ford Mustang was traveling southbound on Avalon Boulevard before making a left turn onto eastbound Rosecrans Avenue. The Mustang turned directly into the path of a black Toyota Tacoma traveling northbound on Avalon Boulevard.
The Toyota T-boned the Mustang on the passenger side and sent it traveling out of control. As a result, it collided with a metal pole.

The Toyota’s driver, a 24-year-old man, suffered minor injuries.
The cause of the collision is under investigation and no arrests were made, according to CHP. No further details were immediately available.
