Police: Car Thief Kills Pregnant Woman, Her Boyfriend In Fiery Crash

POMONA (CBS) — A pregnant woman and her boyfriend were killed early Monday morning when their car burst into flames after being hit by an unlicensed driver in a stolen vehicle, authorities reported.

Miguel Herrera, 22, and his girlfriend Desiree Grajeda, 17, were instantly killed in the crash.

They were out driving on Holt Avenue at 2 a.m. for a late-night snack when a stolen Infiniti G375 broadsided them. Their Nissan Maxima was split in half and went flying into a light pole. The car then burst into flames, police said. The driver and passenger were both pronounced dead on the scene.

Pomona police arrested Lorraine Martinez, 26, of Pomona on suspicion of vehicle theft. More charges could be added later. Martinez does not have a driver’s license, according to officials.

    Jeff hates because he realizes that Hispanic people are now the majority in most of California. He is in denial on what is slowly happening here. What I can tell him, is that I am Mexican and I can trace my family all the way back 1750, when California was still part of Spain. And I despise people like him who are ignorant of the fact our people were here before them. California is now a Hispanic state, the name California is Spanish, the name Los Angeles is Spanish, and so is our capital, Sacramento is Spanish. Sierra Nevada, Spanish. San Diego, Spanish. San Francisco, Spanish. Monterey, Spanish. The Spanish names are endless. If you don’t like living here Jeff, then maybe you should head back east where your ancestors came from.

      I’m sorry for your loss, it’s terrible to lose a child… but I have to ask why is a 17 year old out at 2AM with a 22 year old man? This is a incident that never should have happened.

  4. Dr. Rule says:

    Exactly. Oh, did I mention that they like to make out with their cousins?

    So called Americans, hate Mexicans because they realizes that Hispanic people are now the majority in most of California. There is in denial on what is slowly happening here. What I can tell them, is that I am Mexican and I can trace my family all the way back 1750, when California was still part of Spain. And I despise people like themselves who are ignorant of the fact our people were here before them. California is now a Hispanic state, the name California is Spanish, the name Los Angeles is Spanish, and so is our capital, Sacramento is Spanish. Sierra Nevada, Spanish. San Diego, Spanish. San Francisco, Spanish. Monterey, Spanish. The Spanish names are endless. If you don’t like living here So Called Americans, then maybe you should head back east where your ancestors came from.

      Well Mero, you are so right. Just look at Mexico. You all have done a great job there and California is falling right in line! Nice job!!

    2. Dufus says:

      But the streets are American.
      Lincoln Street
      George Washington Parkway
      Franklin Avenue
      Martin Luther King Blvd
      Reagan Way
      Disney Drive

      So you have Spanish named cities with American named streets. Well you can’t have a city with out streets.

      Certainly makes the logic of your argument sound very ignorant of reality. Especially since your people were not here first. The American Indians were here first. Oh and there are streets name Geronimo, Pontiac, Sioux, Apache, etc…

    For you to sit there and actually write all that shows what a loser you really are. I’m starting to feel bad for people like you. Instead of putting so much emphasis on what you just wrote, why don’t you actually go do something productive with your life.

  7. huh? says:

    “neither could the baby lol”

    What are you trying to say?

  8. really? says:

    James, yes that could have very well been you family. Did you ever stop to think that the two young people who died so tragically is someone else’s family? I wouldn’t wish death like that upon anyone, no matter what their race is. .

  9. MiSS says:

    Man most of you people are stupid as hell. Being Mexican has nothing to do with this couple being killed.. only ignorant people with nothing better to do, and who obviously dont have jobs to keep them occupied, would write such lame and disrespectful comments about such a tragedy! I hope your families and your friends never experience a loss such as this and never have to see such stupidity from the public while they are grieving! Grow up and stop acting like dirtbags.. its not cool and no one thinks youre funny!!!

    1. gloria says:

      Very well said.Now I know why your name is dufas…

  10. susan says:

    the girl that was killed was a child people. she wasnt even old enough to buy ciggerates! she died a very tragic death. we are all Gods creation. just imagine what she and that guy went through before they died. terrible.

    1. rich says:

      susan what are you talkin about yes this is sad but she was not a child she was a grown woman children are not able to have children and they went through NOTHING before they died they never saw it comming and died on impact

    2. Dufus says:

      And yet, God let this child and unborn child die.

  11. susan says:

    talking about an unborn baby miss lauren is pretty nasty. ur probly siting on your fat a!! drinkn ur cholate milk with ur two slimfast bars havn a whole lota fun. get a life. u definitly have no children or u wouldnt be sayn that. nasty lonley being. and if by Gods grace he ever lets u have children remember what u said about this one.

  12. Bree says:

    two young people have died an a unborn baby what is wrong with you who cares what the mom looks like what does that have to do with. There’s kids out their with parents who don’t have no tattoo’s and come from a good family and their kids go shoot up their school’s and kill innocent children. Don’ judge someone you don’t know. May they rest in peace

  13. susan says:

    ok rich the KIDS could have seen it coming. and actually she was a child. children can have children. once you get a period you can have a baby dim wit didnt u take health class in school.

    1. rich says:

      susan i have not call you or anyone else off color names i mearly said was shes not a child a woman in my view stops being a child when she makes the decision to have a child having a child is an adult act if you choose to do it you stop being a child your self and as for them seeing it comming its highly unlikely they got hit broad side so in all likely hood they never saw it comming

  14. n.rosales says:

    My prayers go out to the girls family and her boyfriends family. Very sad and horrible way to have 2 peoples lives cut off so short for someone else’s stupidity. I hope they make the girl suffer for a long time and thY she never sees the outside of prison walls…. My husband knows the girl and her family but he knows het bu Buddha when she was five years old. She asked him for rides to school and to buy her amdroids her brother bam bam ice cream. They will be missed.

  15. Karma gets the Last Laugh says:

    just pray you ignorant people never have to experience a tragic loss like this with one of your family members. Karma has a funny way of getting around

  16. Rosie says:

    Its really sad, that we now live in a world filled with so much stupidity and Ignorance. to take a really sadden situation and turn it into a political debate. who cares who was here first? Only stupid people. the reality and fact is’ is that we all live here now. a young mother, unborn child and a husband to be, tragically lost they’re lifes, and instead of showing your condolences, you stand there bickering on stupid things. you all need to grow up and act like human beings with feeling, and emotions. we all have family that we hate to loose and we talk as it can never happen to us. A child that never had a chance to grow and live its life, a mother who was given a second chance at motherhood, and a man who was madly in love with this young woman, are lost. have some respect for her life and show some compassion for her family.

  17. Camilla says:

    This is my family! Stop with your nasty comments. You have a family as well I just hope nothing like this happens to you.

  18. strawberries says:

    How horrible! Deepest sympathies to the families. I hope the person who hit them gets charged with vehicular manslaughter.

  19. stephanie says:
