A woman was killed last week after she was beaten outside a Santa Ana nightclub. According to authorities, Pham was attacked on the morning of Jan. 18 as she stood in line outside The Crosby Club.

When officers arrived, they found her unconscious. She died Tuesday after being taken off life support.

According to one of Pham’s friends, the confrontation may have started when Pham unintentionally stepped into another group’s photo.

“I can’t imagine it starts with someone interrupting a photo,” her father, Dung Pham, said in an interview Sunday with The Los Angeles Times. “I don’t know what to think.”

Pham graduated from Chapman University with a degree in psychology and was married a year ago this month.

Police have arrested two suspects and are looking for another person of interest in the incident.

Last week, Vanesa Tapia Zavala, a 25-year-old of Santa Ana, pleaded not guilty to murder in connection with Pham’s death. She is being held on $1-million bail.

Police have released the names of the second suspect or of the other person being sought, officials said. The incident is still under investigation.

A seven-vehicle crash left one dead Monday night in San Fernando Valley, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

The accident happened at 11:05 p.m. in the 19200 block of Ventura Boulevard in Tarzana.

The male driver of a gray Ford Taurus, and suspected of drunk driving, was driving eastbound on Ventura when he crashed into six vehicles stopped at the intersection. He was allegedly traveling at a high rate of speed, the LAPD said.

An unidentified 60-year-old woman from Los Angeles, who was in the first car to be struck, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The suspected drunk driver, who is described to be in his 30s, went into a nearby convenience store, purchased a six pack of beer, and began drinking after the crash had occurred.

“He was loudly asking for the beer, ‘I need beer, beer,’” the clerk said in an interview with CBS Los Angeles.

“We’ve seen this happen in the past where somebody, because of the level of stress or whatever the situation is, they go out and consume some alcoholic beverages,” Det. Bill Bustos said in an interview with CBS Los Angeles.

Three other people suffered minor injuries. The suspect was transported to a local hospital in stable condition.

The accident remains under investigation. No arrests have been made.
