Los Angeles, CA – Fatal Collision Reported on 10 Freeway near Santa Fe Ave
Los Angeles, CA (October 21, 2023) – A fatal accident reported in the Los Angeles area on Thursday morning claimed one person’s life. At approximately 4:38 a.m. on October 19, law enforcement responded to the incident on the eastbound lanes of the 10 Freeway, just east of Santa Fe Avenue.
According to initial reports, the driver of a 2022 Kia Stinger was traveling in the wrong direction of the roadway, heading west on the eastbound lanes. As a result, the vehicle became involved in a head-on collision with an oncoming Honda Fit.
Upon arrival, medical responders pronounced the sole occupant of the Honda deceased at the scene. Authorities have identified the victim as a 33-year-old resident of Los Angeles.
Two other people involved in the crash were injured. Paramedics transported a 5-year-old child and a 22-year-old woman from the Kia to a hospital for emergency medical treatment of moderate injuries.
The driver of the Kia, 25-year-old Brandon Bencomo, is currently facing charges of suspected DUI and vehicular manslaughter.
The California Highway Patrol is investigating the incident.
We hope the two injured victims recover quickly.
Our condolences go out to the family of the victim who died in this crash.
Fatal Car Accidents in California
Fatal accidents take place far too often in California. Every year, thousands of people end up passing away as a result of injuries that they sustain in collisions. Far too often, these crashes are preventable. One of the most common factors in fatal collisions is impairment.
When drivers are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they may not be able to make responsible decisions. They may not have the ability to control their vehicle in a responsible manner. As a result, they are more likely to cause accidents that severely harm or kill others nearby.
