The crash happened about 5:40p.m. Monday on Parkway Drive at Elliott Avenue near a four-way stop. Police believe that Canizalez and Morones were in a high-speed race on Parkway Drive, which has a speed limit of 25 mph. Traffic investigators have not yet determined how fast the vehicles were traveling at the time of the crash. Canizalez, behind the wheel of a Ford Mustang, is suspected of colliding with Groce’s Nissan Altima, El Monte police Detective Ralph Batres said. The force of the crash rammed the Nissan into a stopped Ford F-150 pickup truck with several people inside, he said. The Nissan burst into flames. Los Angeles County Department of Coroner officials said Tuesday they did not yet know whether the three died as a result of the crash or the fire. About the same time, police suspect Morones crashed his Honda Accord into a parked car and fled on foot, Batres said. • Photo Gallery: Mother, two kids died in burning car • Photo Gallery: Tragedy in El Monte• Video: Tragedy in El Monte Authorities searched Tuesday for an El Monte man in connection with a street race that ended in a fiery crash, killing a mother and her two children.
