Flowers and a handmade sign have been tacked up on the Malibu City Limits sign at the eastern end of Malibu.

That’s where a 17-year-old girl named Dulce Romero was killed Friday morning.

The LA County coroner identified the child as as Dulce Romero … a residnet of Los Angeles.

Her friends say Dulce was a senior in high school … but was at age 17 alrady working to support her family.

She was working as a babysitter … while still a senior in high school.

Her small red car was bent in half when it collided … nearly broadside … with an S U V last Friday morning.

No details have been released by the L A County sheriff’s office on what led up to the fatal crash … on Pacific Coast Highway at the eastern end of Malibu.

Dulce … the Spanish word for candy.

She was the third person killed in traffic crashes inside Malibu this year.

The 17 year old was described as a a beloved daughter, student and friend who’s smile lit up the room the second she stepped foot inside it. 

She was a young lady who spent her summers working as a house keeper and later as a dearly loved babysitter. 

We don’t have much more details on where she lived .. what school she went to … or where she worked.

He friends have set up a fund for the funeral costs.
