A 21-year-old woman was killed today pushing a disabled car on the 405 in the South Bay.

The woman and a man were pushing a 1995 Toyota that was out of gas when they were hit by a BMW going around 75 miles an hour. The man wasn't hurt, but the woman was thrown into traffic where she was hit by another car, City News Service says.

No one has been cited yet in connection with the incident.

Update: Police say the victim was Stephanie Hernandez Valerio, of Lawndale.
