A traffic collision involving two vehicles and a pedestrian resulted in the death of a 13-year-old girl last Friday.
On February 26, at 7:20am, a black Toyota and a black Infiniti, both traveling westbound on Sunset Boulevard, struck 13-year-old Julia Siegler. Siegler, an eighth grader at Harvard-Westlake School, was walking southbound across Sunset Boulevard in a marked crosswalk against a red light when the accident occurred. The drivers of both cars stopped and attempted to assist Siegler and her mother who was with her at the time of the accident. After ensuring she was being treated by medical personnel, both drivers and their passengers left the scene.
The Los Angeles City Fire Department responded to the scene and transported the victim to UCLA Medical Center, where she died from her injuries.
Neither driver has been arrested or booked in connection with the incident.
