Driver arrested on suspicion of murder in Porter Ranch crash

A driver accused of ramming three cars at Porter Ranch over the weekend, killing two teenage passengers in his vehicle, has been arrested on suspicion of murder, Los Angeles police said Tuesday.

Alexander Ceballos, 20, of Panorama City was arrested Saturday night after the crash, and his bond has been set at more than $4 million, police said. He remains in the hospital since Tuesday.

Police say Ceballos was traveling south on Reseda Boulevard in a Honda CR-V around 5:35 p.m. Saturday when the vehicle veered into the northbound lanes, hitting two other vehicles and a parked car.

The CR-V was carrying six people, including the driver. Two of the occupants, a 16-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl, were killed.

The boy was trapped in the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene; the girl died after being taken to Northridge Hospital Medical Center.

Ceballos was also injured and taken to hospital along with the four occupants of the other vehicles.

The other four people should recover.
