Four teenagers in a Honda were speeding south on Via Marina Monday evening (28 Dec) and didn’t negotiate the curve at the jetty on their way to Pacific Avenue. Three are dead; one is in critical condition.
It is a 45-degree turn and speed was a factor. There were no skid marks. Car went over the divider and went between two Coral trees, striking one. Car flipped over. Two were thrown from the car. Names and ages were just released. Toxicology report has not been completed. It was noted that none had seat belts on.
Car was removed from the scene last night, and this morning the area was being swept clean of glass and debris. Near evening neighbors put flowers and candles. Someone did the cross and “RIP” on the tree.
