Fifteen Year Old Girl Killed In Tarzana Automobile Accident

Los Angeles Auto AccidentAny time a person dies in a car accident it is a tragedy, but it is particularly heart wrenching when that person was young, with their whole life ahead of them. According to a story published on, a 15 year old girl was killed in a mysterious vehicle related accident in Tarzana last week.

Police are still investigating the death and have heard different accounts of how the accident happened. Police don’t believe that alcohol or street racing was involved in the crash. Some witnesses say the girl, who was a student at YULA, an Orthodox Jewish high school in Beverly Hills, was struck by an SUV driven by a 16 year old friend. Other witnesses claim she was performing a stunt known as “car surfing.” This is when someone rides outside of or on top of a moving car.

Whatever the cause of this young woman’s death, it is a tragedy for her, her friends, and her family. The site of the accident has seen a growing makeshift memorial of floral bouquets left by friends.

If you have lost a loved one in an accident, no amount of money can replace them. The deceased’s family, however, may be entitled to certain compensation for their loss through a wrongful death claim. Depending on the circumstances, these damages may include:

  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering of the deceased before they died
  • Funeral and burial expenses
