Santa Fe Springs Fatal Crash


At approximately 3:00 p.m. Friday afternoon, Whittier PD responded to a reported traffic collision on Carmenita Road just south of Imperial Highway. A woman driving a Chevy Malibu struck a big rig, went under the tractor-trailer and was crushed. The vehicle came out from beneath the big rig and a solo female victim was found in the driver’s seat in full traumatic arrest. She was transported by Santa Fe Springs FD paramedics to Norwalk Community Hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries. The Whittier PD Santa Fe Springs office along with the Traffic Bureau will be conducting a long term investigation that will have the road closed through a major portion of rush hour.
