Actor and comedian Tony Baker is mourning the loss of his 21-year-old son Cerain Baker who died in a horrific car crash this week in Burbank, California.

According to officials from the Burbank police department, Cerain was a passenger in a silver Volkswagen that was struck by two other vehicles that were apparently street racing.

Police say Cerain was with three friends - Jaiden Johnson, 20, Natalee Moghaddam, 19, and another unnamed occupant - when their car was struck by cars involved in illegal street racing.

The occupants were "ejected" from the car on impact and Cerain Baker, Johnson and Moghaddam died of "multiple blunt force injuries". The fourth person in the car "sustained serious injuries" and is hospitalized at a local trauma center.

Speaking to NBC Los Angeles on Thursday, "Whiplash" star Baker admitted his son's death "feels like it's not real".

"We get waves of grief. We sob uncontrollably. Then it's back to regular conversation," he added.

An investigation into the crash, which caused one of the cars to catch fire, is ongoing. No charges had been made as WENN.com went to press.

Sergeant Emil Brimway, of the Burbank Police Department, told ABC7 that the crash is the worst he's seen in his nearly 20 years as a police officer.

"In my 19-year-career, I haven't seen anything like this, personally," he said. "Not to this magnitude and this level of debris over a two-city block span."

Gwinnett County PD

The driver of a van packed with 16 women that crashed near Atlanta over the weekend has been charged with vehicular homicide.

Monica Manire was arrested Wednesday and charged with six counts of homicide by vehicle in the first degree, Fox 5 Atlanta reported. She was also charged with improper lane change.

Manire, 32, of Byron, was driving the 2002 Dodge Ram van to a sober living meeting in Gwinnett County when she recklessly changed lanes, causing the van to flip on its side and slide across 2 lanes of traffic.

She is being held at the Gwinnett County Jail, according to Fox 5 Atlanta.

According to a police report, the van was heading north on I-85, approaching the I-985 split, when another vehicle unexpectedly changed lanes in front of it.

Manire changed lanes to avoid a collision. The van lost control and rolled over on its side before sliding across two lanes and striking a guard rail where it burst into flames.

A motorist kicked out the windshield in a desperate attempt to reach the passengers trapped inside the burning van.

10 people including Manire made it out alive, but six women perished in the fire.

Gwinnett County police released the names of the victims who are all from Georgia.

Among the dead was Alishia Carroll of Columbus, a 34-year-old mother of four, who was trying to kick her addictions.

"She was finally trying to get good for herself and good for kids and God just wanted to take her home," Carroll's oldest child, Kylie Mitchell, told WXIA-TV.

The other deceased victims are Kristie Whitfield, 44, of Mount Airy, Ashleigh Paris, 26, of Kennesaw, Tina Rice, 53, of Atlanta, Normisha Monroe, 38, of Norcross, and Rose Patrick, 34, of Ellabell.
