Lyft Passenger Killed Following Palmdale Hit-and-Run Racing Crash
Lyft passenger Spechelle Pope, 28, was killed following a hit-and-run street racing crash that happened in Palmdale.
According to several news reports, Pope was one of two victims in the crash which happened at around 12:30 a.m. The accident occurred when Pope was riding Toyota Corolla on Rancho Vista Boulevard in Palmdale.
