Winnetka, CA – 2 Teens Killed in Car Accident at Parthenia St & Lurline Ave

Winnetka, CA (November 18, 2019) – Two teenagers were killed in a motor vehicle accident that took place at or near the intersection of Parthenia Street and Lurline Avenue in Winnetka. The fatal accident happened early Sunday morning, November 17th, according to authorities.

A preliminary investigation into the incident found that Pablo Ramon Trujillo was driving a 2007 Chevrolet truck westbound along Parthenia Street when he lost control of the vehicle. The truck subsequently collided with a van and rolled over into two parked vehicles.

Responders arrived at the scene where Trujillo and two teenage passengers were trapped inside the wreck. The three victims were extricated and both passengers were pronounced deceased. Cesar A. Perez, 19, was identified as one of the victims and the other as a 16-year-old male whose identity is being withheld due to his age.

Trujillo sustained only minor injuries and was later arrested on suspicion of murder. The incident is under investigation.

We would like to offer our condolences to the families of both victims at this time.

Fatal Car Accidents in Los Angeles

Factors such as high speeds and distracted driving often contribute to serious and even fatal collisions. In fact, research has found that more than 3,000 California car accidents resulted in deaths during 2017, alone. Many more ended with various injuries from minor to serious.

After nearly any accident, the enormously high costs of hospital bills, physical recovery, and funeral expenses leave many people with no choice but to file a claim for compensation. During such a time, we believe that anyone who has caused the injuries or death of another person should be held accountable for their actions.
