The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office said that charges were filed Wednesday against the teenager over the deadly crash.
Because the case involves a juvenile, the particular charges can’t be disclosed until arraignment, the office said. The arraignment is set for April 23 in Inglewood juvenile court.
The driver of the Lamborghini, whose identity hasn’t been revealed as he is a juvenile, was booked for vehicular manslaughter on February 23, police said.
Since the crash, the friends and family of Monique Muñoz, the woman killed in the February crash, have made calls for charges to be filed against the driver. The family criticized that the teen was given the keys to a Lamborghini.
They also started an Instagram account dedicated to seek ‘justice’ for Muñoz..
“I want the person to be held accountable for his action,” Muñoz’s mother, Carol Cardona, said.
Muñoz, of Hawthorne, California, was driving home from work shortly after 5 p.m. on February 17 in West Los Angeles when a black Lamborghini SUV crashed with her Lexus sedan, police said. Her car was badly damaged. The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the crash aid, but she was declared dead at the scene.
The father of the 17-year-old driver apologized to Muñoz’s family over her death.
