The incident occurred in the 13000 block of Rosecrans Avenue shortly after midnight.

Both Chaidez and Montoya were apparently walking with their bicycles when they were struck. The two were a couple and friends posted photos of them both at the location where their lives tragically came to an end on.

As of Monday morning, candles, flowers and a white spray painted bicycle was placed at a Memorial in honor of the couple. 

One of the notes simply stated, “Together Forever.”  

Accident photos also taken at the scene from journalists show a badly damaged black Ford F-150 that also struck several additional parked cars along Rosecrans Avenue.

Lt. Kevin Biggs, with the Norwalk Sheriff’s Department told HMG-CN that investigators are still finalizing an official incident report on the tragic incident.

“We should have the report completed by Friday, and until then we have no comment on the matter,” Biggs said.

Since the case is ongoing, if you have any information about this case, you’re urged to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Norwalk Station at (562) 863-8711.
