A juvenile female died Sunday night after an apparent single-vehicle crash in Reseda, officials with the Los Angeles Police Department said.
Calls about the crash with one person trapped, near the intersection of Wilbur Avenue and Saticoy Street, came in at around 4:49 p.m., according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.
“A silver Toyota Camry was traveling at a high rate of speed when it lost control and veered to the right,” Detective Fuentes with LAPD’s Valley Traffic Division said. “Unfortunately, when it lost control, it went airborne and collided with a pole.”
The passenger, a juvenile male, was able to exit the vehicle on his own. He was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
The driver of the Toyota, a juvenile female, died as a result of her injuries, Det. Fuentes said.
Fuentes also said that preliminary information suggests that the victims were not wearing their seatbelts.
The cause of the crash is under investigation. Police said there is no evidence at this time to suggest other vehicles were involved in the incident, but that they are looking for witnesses to accident.
