La Mirada~An early morning crash occurred in La Mirada this morning killing two people, resulting in one arrest, but not who you think.

A truck reportedly was traveling at a high rate of speed, near 100 mph, southbound on Santa Gertrudes Avenue about 2:04 a.m this morning.

After striking a vehicle exiting a housing tract westbound on Lawnhill Drive, the truck became out of control and struck a large tree near Benton Middle School, across the street from Beatitudes of our Lord church, just south of Olive Branch drive. The crash killed the driver and the only passenger.

In a twist, the driver of the vehicle that was hit when exiting Lawnhill, was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.

Jason and Greg,
These two men hold differnt memories for me. growing up in lamirada I went two Escalona Elementry. For most of the years there Greg and I were best friends. He always had a smile with closed eyes. He was a fearless kid, no one wanted to mess little Greg, I have lots of memories man I am sure gonna miss you.
When I met Jason He was on my my litte league baseball team. He was a cool kid with a positive pearsonality. We wernt the best players but we had a lot of fun. We later met again in hgh School and we hit it off again because we both played music. Man this guy had the world in his hands.
Anyways its not fair when when life is taken so quick. They were good souls and will live on forever with the people they crossed.
See you guys later.
