Alleged Gang Member Charged in Fatal Los Angeles Crash Which Killed 3

Los Angeles police investigators have charged Gregory Black, a 31-year-old alleged gang member with an extensive criminal history, with three counts of gross vehicular manslaughter. The charges stem from a fatal collision in Los Angeles over the weekend, resulting in the deaths of Juvelyn Arroyo, Veronica Amezola, and Kimberly Izquierdo. Arroyo and Amezola were sisters, while Izquierdo was a friend.

According to the Los Angeles Police Department, Black was driving a white Mercedes-Benz at high speeds and running multiple red lights when he collided with an Uber vehicle at the intersection of Century Boulevard and Vermont Avenue. The impact was so severe that the Uber spun five times before coming to a stop. Arroyo, Amezola, and Izquierdo, who were seated in the back of the Uber, tragically died at the scene.
Detectives investigating the incident revealed that Black was on probation related to a murder case at the time of the collision. He also has three felony convictions and was found to be in possession of a loaded firearm in the vehicle he was driving.

Black, who sustained injuries in the crash, including a fractured left ankle, is currently being held in the Los Angeles County jail on a $4 million bond. He is scheduled to appear in court on September 5. If convicted, he could face life in prison for each charge of gross vehicular manslaughter.

Authorities are still investigating whether alcohol or drugs played a role in the collision. LAPD Detective Ryan Moreno expressed concern over the prevalence of speeding and reckless driving in Los Angeles, emphasizing the need for action to address the issue.
