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.To do so, the LAPD explains:
