A WOMAN is dead after a “17-year-old driving his Lamborghini at 120 miles per hour slammed into her Lexus and killed her on impact.”
Monique Munoz, 32, was killed after the teenager drove his Lambo into her car in California’s West Los Angeles on Wednesday.
“The child had a heart of gold, never hurt anybody, did everything right,” said Munoz’s stepfather Isaac Cardona.
Munoz was described by her family as being a kind person with her life tragically cut short by a reckless driver.
“Kid’s racing down the street in a Lamborghini, 17 years old in a Lamborghini doing 120 miles per hour, hits and kills her,” Cardona said.
Police were called to Olympic Blvd and Overland Ave in West Los Angeles just after 5pm on Wednesday, where they found the male teen behind the Lambo.
Right beside it was Munoz’s wrecked silver Lexus.
Munoz was pronounced dead at the scene. The teen was rushed to the hospital with head injuries.
Munoz, a receptionist, was set on attending law school in the near future when her dreams were cut all to short.
A GoFundMe started by her family to cover funeral fees described Munoz as a “beautiful, accomplished woman [that] was the heart and happiness of her family.”
The GoFundMe went on to describe Munoz as someone who “only had love and kindness in her heart,” adding the family is “all in shock and finding it impossible to fathom the reality of her unexpected passing.”
The GoFundMe has since raised over $32,000 of its $20,000 goal.
