Monique Muñoz accident
Monique Munoz was killed in West Los Angeles last week as she was driving home from work when her Lexus collided with a Lamborghini SUV, and Muñoz’s family say a teenage driver was behind the wheel. Detectives investigated the fatal accident, which left the teenage driver with what police described as “minor” head injuries.
LAPD’s Western Traffic Division said the crash is an “expensive reminder for everyone to slow down,” and Muñoz’s family say the Lamborghini driver was speeding. The accident happened around 5 p.m. at the intersection of Olympic Boulevard and Overland Avenue.
“Children running down the street in a Lamborghini, 17 in a Lamborghini at 120 miles per hour, they beat her and kill her,” she told KCAL Isaac Cardona, Muñoz’s stepfather. “Nonsense. … I want him to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”

Muñoz worked as a receptionist and had aspirations to go to law school. Muñoz is described on the GoFundMe page as a “consummate beautiful woman” who “was the heart and happiness of her family” and “took away too soon.”
“Her family and her friends were her life, she never missed a family reunion or the opportunity to help a friend and she only had love and kindness in her heart,” says GoFundMe. “We are all in a state of shock and it is impossible for us to understand the reality of her unexpected passing.”
The Los Angeles Police Department said it is unknown at this time whether alcohol or drugs were a factor, and charges have not yet been filed.
An online GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help defray the costs of Muñoz’s funeral.
