    FiST crash and fatality in SOCAL...

    I'm 99% certain this is a FiST. RIP to the party who passed away. Hopefully the injured parties fully recover. For those not familiar with this area people hoon on this road all the time so it gets a lot of focus by the Forest Service and CHP. It's not even wide enough for a centerline. No guardrails, only some old short rock walls to keep you from going over the side. There are a couple exceptions where k-rail has been placed in spots where people have gone over the side repeatedly and died. But there's only so much money and time that can be devoted to patrolling this secluded road so someone goes over the side roughly every 6 months if not less. My opinion: generally speaking the FiST is more car than an 18-year old should be driving.

    An 18-year-old Montebello man died and two others teens were hurt when a car plummeted more than 500 feet over the side of Glendora Ridge Road in the Angeles National Forest southwest of Mount Baldy, officials discovered Sunday.

    The crash was discovered about 10 a.m. between mile markers 8 and 10 of the winding mountain road, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Peter Nicholson. But the victims may have been stranded at the crash scene for nearly a day, as the crash was believed to have taken place at an unknown time of day Saturday.

    Sure looks like the ST door sills. The rear triangle glass is the same as well as the vent. I will agree that its a FiST. Sucks, glad the passengers made it

    Confirmed it's a '17 FiST:

    ANGELES NATIONAL FOREST (KABC) -- One person died and two others were injured Sunday morning after a vehicle went over the side of a road the day before in the Angeles National Forest.

    Los Angeles County Fire officials said the department received a call around 10 a.m. regarding a vehicle down a cliffside on Glendora Ridge Road. Rescue crews found exactly where the vehicle fell after noticing disturbed dirt and hearing cries for help at the bottom of the cliff.

    "That section of dirt was not how it normally is. They pulled the fire engine over, yelled over the hill to see if somebody needed help and they heard someone calling for help," Capt. Brian Jordan said.

    The mangled vehicle was found about 900 feet below the road.

    Crews said the brush and shrubbery, which was more than 6 feet tall, made it difficult for crews to access the vehicle on top of the incredibly steep conditions.

    Authorities said the two people who survived suffered broken bones. The pair were airlifted to trauma centers.

    During the investigation, authorities learned that the driver, identified as Chris Flores, 18, of Montebello, was driving a 2017 Ford Fiesta eastbound on the road at an unknown high speed Saturday night.

    Flores was approaching a right curve in the road but because he was traveling at an unsafe speed he ended up sending the vehicle over the cliff. One of his passengers, an 18-year-old man also from Montebello, died in the crash.

    Flores and another passenger, identified as 18-year-old Zoe Ybarra, of Los Angeles, were the survivors who sustained major injuries.

    The identity of the deceased man was withheld pending notification of next of kin.

    Authorities said alcohol and drugs are not suspected factors in the crash. They were also unsure when exactly the vehicle crashed on Saturday.

    It was unclear if Flores will face any charges for the fatal crash.

    The investigation was ongoing.

    The fact that anyone survived that is amazing.

    No seatbelts!!!! Totally amazing anyone survived.

    It's definitely a Fiesta; the door sill and the RE050A tire indicate it is a FiST.

    Oh damn, sounds like the driver and 1 passenger made it, the other passenger died. Sucks that his actions killed a friend. Sounds like our car is pretty safe though

    No seatbelts? Man. I'm surprised anyone survived. Mountain roads are dangerous. You really need to know your limits when driving fast in the mountains

    Damn, you aren't kidding. Literally no room for error. Can't believe someone thought it was a good idea to hoon on that road, let alone without wearing seat belts. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. Not sure I could live with killing one of my friends through my own jackassery. He may only be 18, but he's gonna learn real quick what it means to be an adult and face the consequences of your actions.

    I hiked Mt. Baldy last month. Can confirm that road is a ton of fun but sufficiently sketchy.

    Thats for sure. The air bags were only good for the first hit. After that they dont do much more than shield occupants from some flying glass, maybe,For a second or two.Then they just ate shitloads of rocks , dust and disintegrated Fiesta in between uncusioned impacts as it tumbled down the cliff. That is a true example of instant penalties for bad decisions.
