Woman killed, 3 kids injured in 118 Freeway crash — husband arrested on suspicion of DUI – Press Telegram

A woman was killed in a severe crash on Highway 118 near Porter Ranch, and her husband was arrested on suspicion of driving with a disability, authorities said.

The crash was reported at around 11:45 pm on Thursday, June 9, on Highway 118 westbound, west of Zelzah Avenue.

A 31-year-old Northridge man was taken to a hospital for moderate injuries and then arrested and booked on suspicion of DUI, CHP official Weston Haver said.

Zeomara Cohen, 31, died at the scene, Haver said.

The couple’s three daughters were also taken to a hospital to be treated for moderate injuries; they are 9 and 4 years and 4 months old. The children were released into the custody of their relatives.

The 2019 Lexus RX 350 was the only vehicle in the collision, Haver said, adding that it is unclear how fast it was going.

The Lexus, for an unknown reason, turned right and veered off the road and hit a railing, climbed onto an embankment and crashed into the concrete sewer and then caught fire, the officer said.

The husband went out with one of the children, Haver said. Two Los Angeles police officers saw the collision and took out the other two children, but were unable to rescue the woman before the flames consumed the vehicle.
