Passenger Killed in Saturday Crash Still Unnamed

Montrose resident lost control of his vehicle and hit a retaining wall, authorities said.

SUN VALLEY (CNS) - A 17-year-old boy was killed in a solo-vehicle crash on La Tuna Canyon Road that left the driver and another passenger hospitalized today.

The accident about a mile west of the Foothill (210) Freeway occurred when 19-year-old Arash Sanei of Montrose lost control of a 2005 Lexus ES 330 that crashed into a retaining wall about 8:20 p.m. Saturday, Los Angeles police with the Valley Traffic Division said.

The name of the fatally injured boy, declared dead at the scene, was unavailable early today.

The impact "caused a considerable amount of intrusion -- halfway through the vehicle," Sgt. Donald Kelly said.

Sanei and passenger Steven Dwight Alonso, 20, were taken to a hospital with what police called moderate injuries.
