UPDATE: La Palma Accident Victim Identified as Kevin Rosales, 19, of Buena Park

LP Crash

Scene of accident Tuesday night in La Palma.

By Brian Hews

HMG-CN has learned that Tuesday’s accident victim in the horrific crash that occurred in La Palma at Sandpiper and Moody was 19-year-old Kevin Rosales of Buena Park.

The La Palma Police Department received calls about a car colliding with a wall at around 7:51 p.m., Sgt. Raul Morales told HMG-CN.

The late model grey Honda slammed into the block wall killing Rosales instantly.

Three hours later firefighters were still working to cut Rosales out of the mangled wreckage.

No other cars were involved in the crash.

Rain was thought to be a factor as the streets were wet from Tuesday’s rain.

Traffic was blocked on Moody from La Luna Drive to Crescent Avenue as investigators tried to figure out what caused the crash.
