A 6-year-old girl and a 51-year-old woman were killed in a head-on collision between a white pickup truck and white minivan on Sept. 11 in Mount Washington, police said.

The driver of the pickup truck, Colleen Broglia, 39, was arrested Saturday for allegedly driving under the influence of narcotics and is expected to be charged with murder, said Los Angeles police Sgt. Jeff Siggers of the Central Traffic Division.

Broglia was driving south on Figueroa Street near Avenue 41 at about 10 p.m. when she crossed to the wrong side of the road and collided with the minivan, said LAPD Sgt. Egon Keil.

Maria Luisa Dominguez, 51, a passenger in the rear of the minivan died at the scene; 6-year-old Angela Giron was critically injured in the minivan and died at a hospital, police said.

    something else you should know cleavage jones boxing is a sport, just need a little back bone something you must not have.would you have the same comments if it was two brotha’s wanting two play a little one on one? you mentioned my maturity and my education,well if you look at the facts ,look at the way the two cars met in the street,and you take into the fact what i said, you will see that any person with a little brain.could have figured that out.you see i have a diploma in private investigation,,im also a licensed bail -enforcement officer(bounty-hunter)for those of you who dont comprehend the english language.im a fact finder .i dont need to flash a badge to get the right answers. its street smarts. something else you need to obtain.

    well let me tell you the truth clevage james(lol) and for all you ignorant quick to point the finger butt-heads.colleen was not at fault, you see there was another person in the truck with colleen…lets call her twiggy.well twiggy wanted todo something that i wont say, and colleen didnt want to go along with twiggy.so they argued,next twiggy bit colleen, so colleen let her have one across her leg,twiggy got mad and grabed the sterring wheel pulling it towards her self(passenger) side of the truck,when colleen pulled the wheel back ,she pulled it to much and was not able to correct it,and hit the van and killing the little girl who was not in a car seat or seat belt,and the 51 year old female who was also not wearing a seat belt, this is all gona be proved .and you all will owe colleen a big ‘IM SORRY”


  4. read so many comments about it being left in God’s hands; I was touched. The churches in your neighborhoods must be filled to the brim with devout church-goers judging by all the uplifting and spiritual comments. For those with a lack of the understanding of the English language, that was called sarcasm. To kick a person when they are down is the true measure of our society’s values. To laugh at a person (Danny Lopez) when their mother died in a car crash is reprehensible. To challenge a person to a boxing match (Kirk Apodaca) is childish and truly shows your level of maturity and education. This lady (coll coll, or whatever ghetto nickname she has) made a conscious decision to get behind the wheel of a car while under the influence of drugs. A simple piss test can prove that fact. It wasn’t an accident. No one put a gun up to her head and forced her to drive and jeopardize other people’s lives. Her judgment was impaired and cost two people their lives. God can save her soul, but the State of California will own her body for a long, long, long time.
    To Mat, if you have family with the FBI (yes, the letters are capitalized because it is an acronym) I would believe that they would be utterly embarrassed to read that post. I don’t know that any Federal Agent conscious of his or her career would have the wherewithal to stand up and say, “Mat is my family and he and his friends were wronged.” Stop! It would probably be more like, “Please ignore my nearly illiterate family.” End scene.


  5. To Kirk, hey bro, I read your article about the cop and I think it is pretty good that you want to get in the ring with him, I don’t think it would be any kind of a match because you’d probably whip him, anyhow, bro I just wanted you know that I am sorry that Colleen really messed up her life this time and hopefully this will give her a chance to clean up her drug habit. I have known her all her life, I’ve know her since she was a baby, and its sad to see someone you’ve known all your life throw away her life like this. Colleen if you read this know that I still love you as a bro and always will and thinking about you all the time. Whatever comes of this, Colleen lets hope you come to your senses and I guess it is in God’s hands now, God bless the familes who had thier lives smashed to bits. Sincerely, your brother Rick

  13. We love you Colleen. My deepest condolences to the families that have lost love ones. I can’t even begin to imagine what it would be like to suffer such a loss. But in all reality, condemnining Colleen and badmouthing her is not going to bring back your loved ones. We all make mistakes and we have vices some more and some worse than others. She will have to live with this the rest of her life and also suffer the consequences. Colleen has had a life filled with losses. Has everyone forgotten about human compassion? Yes, what she did was totally irresponsible, but nevertheless and allthesame it was an accident!
    She did not set out to mow anybody down. And as for all her friends, I’m just glad I don’t want or need any of you to have my back when the chips are down, because I see how well you do that!


  14. Mr. Dominguez,

    I am so sorry for your loss. I’ve know Colleen longer than any of these people. She was once a beautiful loving person. That person died a long long time ago. I will pray for you and your family. I lost my mother 2 years ago to a heart attack. It will get better once you get passed the anger and get on with the healing. I will pray for you and your family.

    To Colleens friends and family members. I, Walter Dominguez, a police officer for the Los Angeles region and the son of Maria Dominguez., Yes! The lady who feld victim to Colleens evilness and reckless driving with the do disregard for public safety. Colleen is a criminal and drug addict, no matter what you guys say. She destroyed the lifes of two families, including that of her own. I understand Colleen had children and so did my mom. But Colleen had no right to take my mom away from us and the life of a six year old girl, who was an angel and knew nothing about evilness until Colleen step foot in her short lived life. Colleen is a drug addict (crack head) and a cold blooded murderer and deserves to spoil in jail. Colleen is a danger to society and to Angelinos. Colleen is a scumbag in society and deserves to spen the rest of her life in prison. God help her evil soul.
