A crash memorial in Burbank honors the three young victims of a deadly street-racing accident. A utility box was painted with the images of three young victims who died in the crash. The unfortunate incident occurred in August 2021.
On August 3, two cars were racing and they collided with a Volkswagen. The crash happened on Glenoaks Boulevard at Andover Drive. The three victims who died as a result of the crash were not involved in the street race. They were the passengers of the Volkswagen.
The deceased were identified as Jaiden Kishon Johnson, aged 20, Natalee Asal Moghaddam, aged 19, and Cerain Baker, aged 21, son of comedian Tony Baker. A fourth individual was severely injured in the collision as well.
Baker’s father attended the unveiling of the crash memorial in Burbank. He said that reckless activity killed the three kids, and expressed appreciation for the memorial and the fact that it would serve as a constant reminder of what happened.
The person who reportedly caused the crash, Hamlet Arseni Aghajanyan, pleaded not guilty to the charges of reckless driving and murder in the crash. Aghajanyan is from Burbank.
According to the L.A. County District Attorney’s office, the 19-year-old was the driver of a gray Kia that raced along with a black Mercedes-Benz which ultimately collided with the Volkswagen taking a left.
The driver of the black Mercedes-Benz, a 17-year-old, faces the same charges. He is currently in the juvenile facility.
