Oganesyan was killed in a two-vehicle crash in the Hollywood Hills area that also left another person in critical condition.
LAPD was called at around 2:21 a.m. to 6800 Milner Road and Highland Avenue where they found the vehicles, each with two occupants. Ogannesian and a female companion were trapped in the Infiniti sedan he had been driving.
A few commenters on the Youtube video seem to place blame on the white BMW that appears to have hit the Infiniti. You can see the passengers being taken out of the vehicles by first responders.

Three other victims — two women and a man — were taken to a hospital. One of the victims, a 35-year old woman who was the Infiniti passenger, was in critical condition.
Firefighters had to free two of the victims from their vehicle, a white BMW.
The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
