A Mountain Pointe High School graduate died in a car accident on a Los Angeles freeway Friday, Feb. 18, authorities say.

Hannah Bartle, 21, had just moved to Los Angeles from Phoenix, where she grew up in Ahwatukee Foothills.

According to LAWeekly online, Bartle's 2004 Suzuki Aero came to a standstill on the northbound 405 freeway in Costa Mesa around 11:10 p.m. during a rain storm. It is unknown what caused the car to stop.

"The California Highway Patrol told City News Service that after the young woman ‘crashed somehow,' her Suzuki ‘came to a stop' and was sideswiped by a Chevrolet Cavalier - putting her in the position to be fatally hit by a 2003 Toyota FJ Cruiser."

Drivers of the other vehicles had only minor injuries. Bartle was pronounced dead at Fountain Valley Regional Hospital at about 12:30 a.m.

Bartle was recognized in the Ahwatukee Foothills News in January for her achievements at Arizona State University, where she was awarded the Moeur Award in December. The award is for students graduating with a 4.0 GPA who completed all of their coursework. Bartle was one of 12 students honored out of more than 5,300 graduates. She graduated with a degree in English (Linguistics) from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
