Prosecutors filed charges Wednesday against a teenager involved in a high-speed crash that killed a woman in west Los Angeles in February.

In a statement, Ricardo Santiago, spokesperson for the Los Angeles County district attorney, said his office could not release more information because the case involved juvenile prosecutions. An indictment is scheduled for April 23.

Monique Munoz, 32, was killed when a speeding Lamborghini crashed into her vehicle at the intersection of Olympic Boulevard and Overland Avenue shortly after 5 p.m. on February 17, according to LAPD captain Brian Wendling.

His vehicle was almost split in two.

The 17-year-old Lamborghini driver, who was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, was arrested on February 23 on suspicion of vehicle manslaughter, according to the LAPD. The police did not reveal his identity due to his age.

Wendling said the teenager had a valid driver’s license at the time and that alcohol or drugs did not appear to play a role in the crash.

He said police did not believe the teenager was street racing.
