87-year-old woman struck and killed by DUI suspect as she got out of car on Sylmar street

An 87-year-old woman was killed late Thursday in a crash involving a DUI suspect in Sylmar.

The crash was reported just before 9 a.m. on Foothill Boulevard. The driver struck a parked car as two people were getting out of the vehicle, police said.

One of the victims was 87-year-old Aurora Reynozo, who was killed, her family said. The second victim was hospitalized, but details about that individual’s condition were not immediately available.

“Adjectives don’t even explain the kind of person she was, and it’s not just because she was my grandmother. Countless people around her who are not relatives just loved her dearly, so I believe that was the fruit of who she was,” said Felicia Reynozo, the victim’s granddaughter.

After striking the victims, the driver crashed into at least five more parked cars, police said.

The driver was arrested on suspicion of felony DUI.
