The CHP said Pananian’s car clipped the back of another vehicle before it flipped, and he was not wearing a seat belt. “I got home from school, called my cousin to see if he wanted to hang out later, and he told me about what happened,” the victim’s friend Andrew Panosian said. “It’s hard to believe that he’s gone.” A 45-year-old driver of a Ford F-150 was in the No. 4 lane going about 50 mph when Pananian veered left from the right-hand shoulder and hit the truck’s rear, KTLA reported citing a CHP collision report.

He then came to a rest on the ledge of the sign. “Any time you speed and you don’t wear your seat belt, there’s a good chance you’re going to get hurt, if not killed,” Patrol Officer Edgar Figueroa said.
