Teen, 15, Killed On ATV Motorcycle Leaving Gardena Driveway
GARDENA (CBSLA.com) — Authorities say a 15-year-old riding a four-wheeled all-terrain motorcycle out of a Gardena driveway was killed in a collision with another vehicle Thursday.
The fatal crash happened around 1 p.m. on El Segundo Boulevard west of Vermont Avenue, said California Highway Patrol Officer D. Zulueta.
The victim, who was not wearing a helmet, rode the quad southbound out of a private driveway onto El Segundo Boulevard. The motorcycle collided with a westbound 1996 Toyota driven by a 20-year-old Inglewood woman, Zulueta said.
The victim — an LA resident — was pronounced dead at the scene. The victim’s name and gender were not released pending notification of next of kin.
The quad rider was ejected onto the street and the Toyota, in turn, collided with a westbound 2007 Nissan being driven by a 63-year-old Temple City man, according to Zulueta.
The other drivers were not injured, Zulueta said.
El Segundo Boulevard was closed in both directions between Vermont and Berendo Avenues to accommodate the crash investigation, according to the CHP.
