1 of 2 Killed in 605 Freeway Crash Identified 

A wrong-way driver caused a fatal collision in Cerritos on Friday morning, resulting in the death of Alyssa Aragon-Ramirez. 

The 26-year-old woman of El Monte was traveling south when a wrong-way driver hit her. 

It was around 2:20 a.m. on February 18th when a Hyundai Elantra made an illegal U-turn on the freeway and proceeded traveling north in the southbound lanes. 

Upon impact, both vehicles became engulfed in flames. 

A passerby pulled Ramirez out of her vehicle and performed CPR at the scene. Sadly, the woman died at the scene. 

The wrong-way driver also died at the scene of the crash. Their identity has yet to be released at this time. 

Police also issued a closure of the southbound lanes of the freeway for several hours following the wreck. 

JT Legal Group sends our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Alyssa Aragon-Ramirez. 

Although crashes involving wrong-way driving account for only 3% of motor vehicle accidents, they usually have a higher fatality rate as they are often head-on collisions. A study in Virginia concluded that those accidents which include wrong-way driving are twenty-seven times more likely to end in a fatality compared to other types of accidents.
