The fatal car crash happened around midnight on Thursday as the Corvette was traveling eastbound on Roscoe near Hayvenhurst Avenue. The Corvette crashed violently into a metal guardrail and skidded across the railroad tracks, coming to rest upside down about 400 yards past the initial point of impact, according to Los Angeles police Lt. John Romero.
It doesn’t appear that the driver of the 2007 Chevrolet Corvette was racing, or that there was another vehicle involved in the fatal car crash, police said. Det. Bill Bustos of the Valley Traffic Division said the driver of the Corvette was speeding as they headed east on Roscoe Boulevard between Balboa Place and Hayvenhurst Avenue.
