A man and a woman were killed Sunday when the Mercedes-Benz in which they were traveling drove off a freeway off-ramp in Porter Ranch and plunged into a deep arroyo.
The crash was at the DeSoto Avenue off-ramp from the eastbound Ronald Reagan (118) Freeway. It was reported to the California Highway Patrol at 12:16 a.m., said CHP Officer Alex Rubio.
The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office identified the woman as 50-year- old Gwen Bolden and identified the man as 44-year-old Diijon Bishop.
CHP crash investigator said the man driving the sedan, for some unknown reason, made an unsafe turning movement in the 2008 Mercedes-Benz. The car smashed through the guardrail separating the main lanes of the eastbound 118 Freeway from the DeSoto Avenue offramp, according to the CHP.
The car continued through a chain link fence and rolled down a steep embankment into Brown Canyon. It landed on its roof.
According to sources at the scene, firefighters turned over the sedan and discovered the two people dead inside. A small white dog with a tag reading “Harley” survived.
The car was smashed, and removed by a cable from a truck on the bridge above the canyon.
