Pasadena police have identified two victims in a fatal traffic accident Tuesday caused by suspects fleeing an attempted traffic stop.
As a result of the collision, Tracey Ong Tan, 26, a Glendale resident, and an 11-year-old child, a Daly City resident, died at the scene.
Three other occupants of theÂ minivan which was struck by the suspects’ car were transported to a local hospital with serious injuries and identified as KenricÂ Ng, 49; Irene Ng, 52; and a 16 year old female, all residing in Daly City, Calif.
Police said the accident occurred after a Tuesday morning shooting resulted in police and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents conducting anti-gang operations in Pasadena.
A Pasadena Police gang investigator who was partnered with an FBI agent sawÂ a silver Dodge Durango commit a traffic violation in theÂ area of Claremont Street and Marengo Avenue.
The officers attempted to initiate a traffic stop; however, they say the driver, identified as Darryl Williams, 22, a Pasadena resident, failed to yield.
The officers initiated a vehicle pursuit, as Williams continued to evade, police say.
As suspect Williams approached the intersection of Marengo Avenue and Maple Street, he failed to stop for a red light and hisÂ vehicle collided with the victims’ minivan turning onto Maple Street.
After the accident, Williams along with three other suspects in his car -Â Brittany Washington, 21, a Los Angeles resident; Â Demauria Hannah, 22, a Pasadena resident; and Jada Mays, 18, Pasadena resident – were arrested and charged with murder, police say.
All suspects sustained moderate injuries from theÂ collision and currently remain in police custody.
During the pursuit, one of the occupants discarded a loaded handgun that was later recovered by Pasadena Police officers.
At this time, the Pasadena Police Departmentâ€™s traffic fatality investigators and homicideÂ detectives are continuing their investigation.
