Monday morning report, Feb. 22

Five things to know this Monday morning: 

1.) One person was killed in a late-night traffic collision at Paramount Boulevard and 3rd Street on Saturday. 

A witness posted on the Crime Watch of Downey page that one of the vehicles involved in the collision had been stolen from the gas station across the street. The stolen car allegedly ran a red light and struck a vehicle exiting the Downey Brewing Company parking lot. 

The victim has not been publicly identified. 


2.) Warren High's Key Club has created a GoFundMe campaign as it raises money to attend a district convention in Sacramento. (Full disclosure: I'm one of their advisors.)


3.) The Downey Relay for Life isn't until May 21, but 20 teams have already raised more than $2,000. 


4.) Mayor Alex Saab was at Los Padrinos Juvenile Hall last week where he helped dedicate new student-created murals. 

According to a press release, "the effort was made possible thanks to a longtime partnership among the Los Angeles County Office of Education, the County Probation Department and the nonprofit group Theatre of Hearts/Youth First."


5.) A strip of Firestone Boulevard near the post office is on the market. Asking price: $2.95 million.
