Man Arrested After Crash That Killed 11-Year-Old Girl

An 11-year-old girl was killed and three others injured, including a 15-month-old, Friday night in a crash near a food stand in Boyle Heights.

The suspect was later identified as Jose Luis Perez, said Officer Drake Madison of the LAPD's Media Relations Section. The auto went airborne and slammed into two parked vehicles in front of the taco stand.

The infant was uninjured, but both women were treated at the hospital. One of the victims suffered a fractured leg, according to reports from the scene, but the injury is not considered life-threatening.

Police said all the victims were pedestrians.

The driver was arrested for vehicular manslaughter and there were indications the death vehicle may have been involved in a street race, but there was no confirmation of that from police.

A nitrous oxide container was confiscated from his vehicle, but officials have not confirmed whether street racing caused the accident.

Police had previously said they were looking into whether street racing, alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash, but did not provide information on those aspects of the investigation. Jocelyn Parras, the owner of the parked auto that struck the family, said the vehicle trapped them against a wall. His name has not been released due to his age.
