Man Crashes Into East L.A. Home, Killing Girlfriend, Newborn Baby

(Latimes) A 22-year-old man crashed his car into his girlfriend's Boyle Heights home, killing her and a newborn baby, authorities said Monday.

The man, whose name had not been released, was arrested, police said. Authorities said his motive was under investigation, and it was unclear if the days-old baby was his and his girlfriend's.

The incident occurred just before midnight Sunday near Mott and Cincinnati streets.

The baby and the 19-year-old woman were taken to a hospital, where they were pronounced dead, said LAPD Officer Gregory Baek.
