Monique Munoz Accident
Monique Munoz was killed in west LA last week on her way home from work when her Lexus collided with a Lamborghini SUV, and Munoz’s family says a teen driver was at the wheel. Detectives investigated the fatal crash, which left the teen driver with what was described by police as “minor” head injuries.
The LAPD’s West Traffic Division said the wreck is a “costly reminder for everyone to slow down,” and Munoz’s family says the driver of the Lamborghini was speeding. The accident happened around 5 p.m. at the intersection of Olympic Boulevard and Overland Avenue.
“Kids racing down the street in a Lamborghini, 17 years old in a Lamborghini doing 120 miles per hour, hits and kills her,” Isaac Cardona, the Munoz’s stepfather, told KCAL. “Senseless. … I want him prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”
