TEMESCAL VALLEY, Calif. — Three teenagers were killed in a Southern California crash after one of the victims’ mother said they played a ding-dong-ditch prank on a man who allegedly chased them with his car and intentionally rammed his vehicle into theirs.
Authorities said 42-year-old Anurag Chandra intentionally rammed a white Infiniti into the victims’ Toyota Prius occupied by six people Sunday night. The Prius slammed into a tree after the driver lost control and veered off the road.
Three teenagers in the car were killed, who were identified as Drake Ruiz, Daniel Hawkins and Jacob Ivascu, all 16 years old. The remaining three victims sustained moderate injuries.
