17-year-old Albert Cruz and 18-year-old Sergio Martinez Dead, Alexander Marquez Detained in Palmdale Hit-and-Run
PALMDALE, CA (February 8, 2021) — Albert Cruz and Sergio Martinez were killed in a hit-and-run accident at 10th Street and Avenue O 8 on January 30.
According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the deadly accident happened around 10:22 p.m.
Inferring from the evidence, detectives believe that a black 2015 Chrysler 200 drove through a red light at the intersection. The Chrysler, driven by William Alexander Marquez, subsequently crashed into a westbound dark gray 2018 Honda Civic.
As a result of the impact, the Honda occupants—17-year-old Cruz and 18-year-old Martinez—died despite having received life-saving efforts.
Following the crash, 34-year-old Marquez fled the scene prior to police officers’ arrival. However, late Friday morning, Marquez surrendered to police before posting $50,000 bond.
At this time, the crash remains under investigation. Yet if anyone has more information on this fatal accident, please contact officers.
We would like to extend our condolences to the families and friends of Albert Cruz and Sergio Martinez.
