LAPD officers are identifying a Ventura County woman as the person who was fatally injured in a San Fernando Valley traffic accident this week.
Brandi Todd of Moorpark was headed north on DeSoto Avenue, near the 118 Freeway in Chatsworth Monday morning when she lost control of her vehicle, slammed into the back of a truck, and then skidded into southbound traffic. Her car hit a southbound SUV.
The 21 year old woman died shortly after the accident. The driver of the SUV is expected to recover from her injuries. LAPD investigators say while they’re still investigating the accident, it appears that speed was the key factor in the accident.
