One Cerritos resident told HMG-Cn, “last night during the debates, we heard the helicopters above, they said there was a bad motor vehicle accident over on the north side of the Regional Park, but they couldn’t find the driver, so I heard the helicopters overhead  about 9 p.m. As I understood, a car hit a light pole north of the park, and south of the 91 freeway. then we heard a gunshot about 8:30 p.m. last night. This morning around 7 a.m., we heard the helicopter above, this car was on fire behind my house. My brother, Ken,  was out there, my brother and another neighbor  trying to pull the body out, but did not succeed it was too hot.”

Update 1:30

The car is registered out of the city of La Palma, unknown of the sex or the race of  owners  car. Coroner’s office is supposed to make an investigation later this afternoon to see if they can determine if it was a murder or suicide. The body is too charred. Body was located in front seats of either Toyota or Honda.
