Whittier, CA (November 9, 2023) – Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn has issued the following statement regarding charges filed today against the wrong-way driver who crashed into an LASD recruit class during their morning run last year, injuring recruits and killing recruit Alejandro Martinez:

“What happened to recruit class #464 on their morning run last year was a terrible tragedy that took the life of Alejandro Martinez and forever altered the lives of his fellow recruits.
