The San Gabriel Valley (Spanish: Valle de San Gabriel) is one of Southern California’s major valleys, located to the east of Los Angeles. The San Gabriel Valley, which was once primarily agricultural, is now almost fully urbanized and forms a vital element of the Greater Los Angeles metropolitan region. It is one of the country’s most ethnically diverse regions. The valley is approximately 200 square miles (520 km2) in area and is home to thirty-one cities and five unincorporated villages. It is fully within Los Angeles County, California.
Pasadena is the most populous city in the San Gabriel Valley. Pasadena was founded in 1886, becoming the fourth city in Los Angeles County, California, after Los Angeles, Santa Ana, and Anaheim (Santa Ana and Anaheim are both now located in Orange County, which broke off in 1889). Water security in the San Gabriel Valley and Los Angeles County has recently been stressed by statewide droughts in California.
The driver of the 2020 GMC Sierra pickup remained at the site and assisted investigators. The motorist was traveling west on Seventh Street toward A Street while Ramirez was crossing the intersection within the crosswalk.
Ramirez was taken to the hospital by paramedics, but she did not survive. She will be greatly missed.
