A woman was hit and killed by a driver in a Los Angeles street takeover on Christmas Day and police believe others were seriously injured

A 24-year-old woman was hit and killed by a runaway car Street “Takeover” in Los Angeles, California, and police said others were likely seriously injured in the videotaped crash.

The harrowing incident happened around 9 p.m. on Christmas Day at the intersection of Florence Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard

Cellphone video shows the car, which police described as a black Chevy Camaro, speeding into a crowd of onlookers. Elyzza Guajaca, 24, was beaten and died after being taken to hospital.

Video shows the driver of the car getting out and joining others slamming a man to the ground.

Police said they believe several others were hit by the vehicle and could be seriously injured. They released surveillance video from a gas station showing bystanders and participants walking away after the accident.

According to LAPD detective Ryan Moreno, there were about 200 people in the crowd.

A “takeover” involves a flash mob of people occupying an intersection while motorists perform dangerous stunts with their cars. This year alone there have been hundreds of street takeovers in Los Angeles, some resulting in injuries and deaths.

That family from Guajaca told KTLA-TV that she plans to be a nurse and became a fan of racing and street takeovers after watching the popular Fast and Furious film series. They also said they had warned them not to go to the street events anymore because they were so dangerous.

The LAPD is asking for the public’s help in identifying the other victims harmed in the incident. There is a $50,000 reward for information leading to the identity, arrest and conviction of the Camaro driver.

Here’s a local news video of the fatal incident:
