Los Angeles, CA (May 17, 2023) – The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed that 23-year-old Melvin Garcia and 24-year-old Dayna Torres suffered injuries as a result of a car accident that took place in the Los Angeles area.
At approximately 12:20 a.m. on May 15, a Los Angeles Police Department responded to the scene of an accident on East Slauson Avenue.
Reports from authorities show that 37-year-old Gustavo Ramon was fleeing from the police in the area of the 300 block of East Slauson Avenue when his vehicle crossed over the center line and struck a white BMW head-on. The impact of the crash caused the BMW to burst into flames.
Two people in the BMW, identified as Torres and Garcia, were both injured. The victims were transported to area hospitals for emergency care.
Ramon was taken into police custody and charged with felony evading.
At this time, the incident is being investigated.
We hope Dayna Torres and Melvin Garcia are able to recover quickly.
