Fitness Trainer and His 2 Children Killed in 91 Freeway Accident
Early July 9, a popular fitness trainer and his two young children were killed in a tragic multi-vehicle crash on the 91 Freeway in Cerritos, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP).
Officials said that 33-year-old Lavell Mann, his 9-month-old son Legend and 3-year-old daughter Logan were heading west after 1 a.m. near Pioneer Boulevard in a Jeep when it clipped a gas tanker, then slammed into a concrete barrier and overturned. The Jeep was then hit by a black BMW.
All three were pronounced dead at the scene.
A child inside the BMW suffered moderate injuries.
Mann was a beloved personal trainer who worked with clients at several gyms. He and his children are survived by wife and mother, Niya.
A GoFundMe page created to help pay for funeral expenses has raised more than $26,000.
“There are no words that can adequately express our sorrow and shock at this tragic incident,” said a representative of Wilshire Law Firm. “Our thoughts are with the victims’ loved ones, especially Niya.”
