A tragedy unfolded late Friday night on the streets of Los Angeles, California when five people involved in alleged illegal street racing were killed. Among the dead are a pregnant mom, her husband, and their unborn son, as well as the driver and another passenger in the same car.
People reported, “Airyana Luna, 20, was 8-months pregnant and her fiancé Valentino Ramos, 21, were expecting their first child Oct. 12 and only last weekend had attended a baby shower ‘where we all got together to celebrate the coming of their baby boy,’ according to a GoFundMe page created after the young couple was killed.”
People reports, “Luna and Ramos, both of San Bernardino, died when the white BMW they were passengers in lost control about 7:30 p.m. struck a center median, flipping and then landing on the other side of the 60 Freeway in Moreno Valley, according to the California Highway Patrol.”
KCAL9 reports, “Officials said three cars were racing on the freeway before one of them lost control, hitting a dirt median before slamming into a guardrail, a concrete median and flipping over, killing the four people inside.”
The couple had just, days before, celebrated the upcoming birth of their first child together, a boy, with a joyous baby shower. Now their joy has turned to devastation for the family of the deceased. The devastated family is seeking answers as to how such a thing could have happened.
Police are looking for the drivers of the two other vehicles involved, a black Mazda hatchback and a gray or dark color newer Honda Civic. Anyone having any information about these individuals is asked to contact authorities right away.
