Family members said Monique Munoz was a shining light in their lives, but hers was cut tragically cut short after she was hit and killed on her way home from work by another driver who family members said was speeding.
“Kids racing down the street in a Lamborghini, 17 years old in a Lamborghini doing 120 miles per hour, hits and kills her,” Cardona said. “Senseless.”
Police were called to the intersection of Olympic Boulevard and Overland Avenue just after 5 p.m. Wednesday when a teenage male behind the wheel of a Lamborghini collided with Munoz, who was driving a silver Lexus.

Relatives said Munoz worked as a receptionist and aspired to go to law school.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the family cover funeral and other expenses.
Cardona said the family would not stop speaking out until the driver he believes is responsible is held accountable.
