By City News Service

A 19-year-old motorist and his 21-year-old passenger were killed when his speeding car slammed into a parked SUV in Monterey Park, police said Friday.

The crash was reported at 3:43 p.m. Thursday in the 500 block of Monterey Pass Road, Monterey Park police Lt. Eric Kim said.

Montebello resident Nicholas Ivan Gonzalez, 21, died at the scene, coroner’s Lt. Dave Smith said.

The teenager was speeding northbound in a white Infinity Q-60 when he lost control of the car, which overturned and crashed into a parked white 2010 Nissan Rogue, according to the Monterey Park Police Department.

Paramedics took the driver to Los Angeles County/USC Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, police officials said.

The name of the 19-year-old driver will be released pending notification of kin, coroner’s officials said.

No other vehicles or people were involved in the crash, according to police.

It’s unknown at this point if drugs or alcohol were a factor, authorities said.
