    CA - Carrie Phillips, 24, dead, 8 hurt in Culver City hit & run, 15 March 2006

    A teacher was killed and eight students were injured Wednesday when an out-of-control car jumped a curb in Culver City and slammed into them as they returned to their school from a nearby park.

    Both the driver of the car and her male passenger fled the scene but were later arrested. They were identified as Laura Samayoa, 20, of Los Angeles, and Reynaldo Cruz, 19, also of Los Angeles...

    Police said Samayoa told them that she and her boyfriend had been arguing and that he grabbed the steering wheel, forcing the car onto the sidewalk.
