Chatsworth Woman Killed in Northridge Multi-Vehicle Accident

A 61-year-old woman from Chatsworth was killed in a fiery multi-vehicle accident in Northridge yesterday.

According to reports, Lois Graver was stopped on the turn lane in Devonshire Street waiting for a green light, when her Infiniti SUV was rear ended by a speeding Mercedes sedan.

The collision sent the SUV into the intersection of Reseda Boulevard where it burst into flames.

Unfortunately, the firefighters were unable to rescue Graver from the wreck and she was pronounced dead on the scene.

The Mercedes, meanwhile, rolled over after losing control and clipping a Ford Focus in the intersection.

The driver of the Mercedes, who was identified as 32-year-old Armine Yegiazaran, sustained moderate injuries.

The driver of the Ford Focus and a pedestrian (who was hit by debris) sustained minor injuries in the crash.

The two of them and Grave’s family should be able to file a personal injury and a wrongful death claim, respectively, against Yegiazaran.
