LAPD Police Officer Killed In Crash With Uber Driver

ABC 7 reports that an off-duty Los Angeles Police Department officer was killed and three other people were injured early Sunday morning in a two-vehicle crash in Simi Valley, authorities said.

LAPD Police Officer Heather Monroe, 30, was killed. She was wearing a seatbelt at the time of impact, according to investigators.

“She was nice and she didn’t take her authority in a wrong way. She was a really good person and I’m so sorry that this happened to her,” Monroe’s friend Serena Devries said.

The incident occurred shortly after 2 a.m. at the intersection of Sycamore Drive and Cochran Street, a police spokesperson said.

Monroe and a driver were in one vehicle; an Uber driver and passenger were in the other. Both drivers and the Uber passenger were transported to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.

The cause of the deadly collision is not yet known.
