A SUV Collides with Mercedes in Broadway Manchester Neighborhood Resulting in Death

The Amaya-Pineda family experienced unimaginable tragedy when a hit-and-run driver slammed into their car in South Los Angeles Monday. A beloved 13-year-old boy, Chris Amaya-Pineda, passed away as a result of the crash and his two-year brother Damian is on life support, fighting for his life. If he survives, doctors have warned that he will most likely be paralyzed. Though his 16-year-old sister was spared serious injury, everyone close to them is feeling tremendous sadness and pain. Deborah, who remains hospitalized but expected to recover, is facing her worst fear as she watches her toddler son struggling to survive and overcome a potentially devastating disability. The crash that occurred at Main Street and 111th Place in the Broadway Manchester neighborhood was an extraordinarily tragic one. A speeding Mercedes ran a red light, slamming into the family’s SUV with enough force to push it into a fence and parked vehicle. Once the hit and run driver realized his vehicle had caught on fire, he quickly left the scene. The family soon found themselves dealing with an unimaginable tragedy; Jade, only nine years old, was sent to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center for treatment for minor injuries but learned upon waking that her brother had passed away and her mother would be okay.

As the emergency medicine doctor there grimly noted, “It’s probably one of the saddest cases I’ve ever seen working here for four years”. The sudden disappearance of 6-year-old Jayden has left his family desperate and in search of answers. Jade, Jayden’s big sister is trying her best to stay strong in the face of immense grief. “He was really kind,” she recalls fondly. With no leads during the investigation, the family pleads for others to keep praying for Jayden as they beg for information about the driver involved in this tragic incident. They want justice and accountability to serve as a reminder to all that such grave offenses will never be tolerated. In midst of an overwhelmingly chaotic situation, a GoFundMe page has been set up to help with funeral costs and provide solace for this grieving family, while those with any information are urged to contact the LAPD at 1-877-275-5273 and make use of their voice to bring justice and closure to this difficult time.
