Woman Identified in Westwood Crash

Qingwen Zhu, 29, of Laguna Hills was fatally injured when the car in which she was riding on the northbound 405 Freeway in the Sepulveda Pass was rear ended by another car on Feb. 11.

The crash occurred about 12:35 a.m. at Moraga Drive. Zhu died at the nearby Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, the coroner’s office reported.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Zhu was riding in a Mini Cooper that had come to a stop for unknown reasons in the No. 3 lane with its lights out. The car was then hit from behind by a Nissan Sentra that was going about 65 mph, the CHP reported.

Paramedics took Zhu, along with the Mini Cooper driver and the Nissan driver, to a hospital, where Zhu died. The two drivers were hospitalized with major injuries, the CHP reported.

The driver of the Mini Cooper, a 26-year-old man from Simi Valley and the motorist in the Nissan Sentra, a 47-year-old man from Ventura, were rushed with major injuries to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. The motorist in the Nissan was the only person inside his car.
