Kristian Vanwagner has been identified by authorities as the deceased in a car collision that occurred around on April 4 on the Westside of Los Angeles near the Marina del Rey neighborhood. Mr. Vanwagner, a 27-year-old Las Vegas resident, was reportedly a passenger in a car that was being driven on the 90 Freeway (aka the Marina Freeway). For reasons that are currently being investigated, the car went off the freeway and crashed into a tree. The young man died at the scene. The 32-year-old Las Vegas woman who was driving the car was taken by first-responders for medical care with serious injuries. The California Highway Patrol says that they do not suspect that a DUI was a factor. Witnesses are being sought.

We extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the victim during this difficult time.
