On Saturday, it was a gruesome scene that looked a lot like the aftermath
of Paul Walker’s (star of
The Fast and the Furious) fatal accident. A vehicle was in a million pieces, debris was everywhere,
and two, a 40-year-old mother and her 14-month-old daughter were dead.
It happened in Livermore, California at around 6:50 p.m. A 35-year-old
Livermore man was driving eastbound on Murrieta Boulevard on Saturday
evening when he lost control of his vehicle. He drove straight into a
backyard of an apartment complex in the 900 block of Murrieta Boulevard,
B. Jones crashed into the back of the apartment building, hitting a 40-year-old
woman and her 14-month-old daughter as they were in their backyard, said
the police. The pair died at the scene.

Two boys, ages 6 and 7 were also struck in the accident; they were transported
to local hospitals and are reportedly in stable condition.
A. Nelson, 27, one of the neighbors at the apartment complex said that
she was outside of her apartment barbequing when she heard a really loud
noise that sounded like thunder.
Nelson said that she immediately grabbed her two-year-old daughter and
ran inside her apartment. When she looked over her fence, she saw a bumper
and debris in millions of pieces. She said it looked like a horror movie.
She said that after that, she heard a jumble of terrifying sights and sounds,
recalling the incident.
A woman screamed, “There’s a baby!” She heard a man,
who she believes was the father, pounding on the ground in anguish. She
said a little boy was laying on the grass having difficulty breathing.
He was later transported to the hospital by ambulance.
The driver was laying on the grass next to the vehicle. He told Nelson
that he was driving, and that he lived there for seven years.
The driver told Nelson that he didn’t know them (the victims) by
name, but that he would say hello. He went on to tell her that he would
see them outside with their dog and kids.
