A teen is dead and a child was hospitalized after their small motor bike collided with a vehicle in the Vermont Vista neighborhood of South Los Angeles on Tuesday.

The crash at 92nd Street and Orchard Avenue was reported at about 5:40 p.m., according to Los Angeles Police Department Officer Drake Madison.

A teen boy who was driving the motor bike was declared dead at the scene, while his passenger, an 11-year-old boy, was taken to a nearby hospital in stable condition, police said.

The teen, whom police said was 16 years old, was identified by family as 15-year-old Esquire Hood. A GoFundMe has been set up to help his family with funeral expenses.

“Esquire, who was only 15 years old was the most loving, funny, had a beautiful soul, and meant the world to us! He was very influential to those whom he crossed paths with,” his sister, Ambre Carter-Earl, wrote on the GoFundMe page.

All parties involved in the crash remained at the scene and are cooperating with the investigation, police said.
