The debris field stretched from one major intersection to another, and over the railroad tracks in a late-night accident involving one vehicle that claimed four lives on Thursday. Investigators worked to piece together what happened when a yellow 2007 Corvette struck a guard rail on Roscoe Boulevard in a violent crash that pinned the driver in the vehicle and caused the remains of three people to be scattered along the roadway.

Because of the typical two-person occupancy of a vehicle that size, and because of the debris field, investigators could not immediately ascertain who was a passenger and who may have been a pedestrian. However, now all four deceased have been identified, and it has been confirmed they were all passengers in the car when it crashed. The LAPD has released this information:

Three of the occupants were ejected from the vehicle, but the driver was restrained by a seat belt and was not ejected. All four occupants sustained fatal injuries and were pronounced dead at the scene of the collision, 24-year-old Sylmar resident Jorge Nunez, 24-year-old Pacoima resident Jossue Collato, 22-year-old Burbank resident Kristin Norris, 22-year-old Carlsbad resident Danielle Wolf.

Now the authorities are looking for witnesses to the collision, and ask that anyone who saw the incident get in touch with the LAPD.
