PALM SPRINGS, CALIFORNIA (April 14, 2018) – Ginevra Gallone-Latte was tragically killed in a deadly crash while traveling with two others to Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. (map)
On Thursday morning, Gallone-Latte, 18-years-old, was traveling in a 2009 BMW 328i with 16-year-old Manuela Cerciello-Rahbari sitting in the passenger seat and Cesar Hernandez-Ozuna, 21-years-old, driving the vehicle. The BMW was driving eastbound on Interstate 10 at high speeds when it drifted off the road and onto the dirt shoulder. Initial reports indicate that the driver of the vehicle attempted to veer back onto the road, but lost control before it drove down an embankment and hit two streets. The vehicle was split in two and Gallone-Latte was ejected from the vehicle.
The 18-year-old aspiring model was tragically pronounced dead on scene. Cerciello-Rahbari suffered life-threatening injuries as a result of the crash and was immediately taken to the hospital. Hernandez-Ozuna sustained a laceration to his face and was transported to Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs. All three victims of the deadly crash were identified as San Diego residents. Gallone-Latte attended La Jolla High School with Cerciello-Rahbari.
The vehicle was supplied with food, camping equipment, and alcohol; however, officials have verified that drugs and alcohol did not play a role in causing this tragic wreck. It is unclear whether poorly constructed roads may have been a possible factor that initiated the crash. Officials and the California Highway Patrol are still investigating the crash.
