Woman killed in crash on Sand Canyon Road

A 29-year-old woman was killed late Wednesday night in a single-vehicle crash on Sand Canyon Road south of Alamo Canyon Road, the same location where a 19-year-old Canyon Country man was killed a little over a year ago.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to the scene of the crash shortly before 11:30 p.m., Detective Travis Kelly of the station’s Traffic Branch said in a press release issued Thursday.

“The 29-year-old female driver, who was not wearing her seat belt, was pronounced dead at the scene,” Kelly wrote in the release.

Investigators with the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Department, meanwhile, are still trying to contact the woman’s next of kin, said department spokesman Fred Corral. Meantime, her name was not released.

The car, which had Arizona license plates, crashed through a wire fence and ended up on the private property of Ken and Nancy Fisher, who were awakened by the sound of a car traveling at a high rate of speed.

That sound was followed by the “all-familiar sound of a crash,” Ken Fisher said.

The couple has endured a half-dozen “brutal accidents in the middle of the night” — two of them fatal — that have all ended up on their property, he said.

Fisher said he told his wife: “I have to know if somebody is alive down there.”

Fisher called 911, grabbed a flashlight and went down to the crash site.

He found that no one was alive, he said. The victim was unresponsive.

Fisher said he found himself in a similar disturbing situation a little over a year ago when the victim was Dakota DeMott.

DeMott, 19, died Jan. 10, 2012, when the car in which he was riding slammed into the tree in front of Fisher’s house.
Detective Kelly wants anyone who witnessed the crash to call him as he continues his investigation of Wednesday’s crash.
