Deadly Accident Claims One in Hollywood

By Robert Kahn on April 21, 2015 - Comments off

LA DUI AccidentAn early morning collision in West Hollywood left one person dead and another arrested on suspicion of driving while under the influence. NBC 4 reports that a driver, speeding north on Curson Avenue ran a stop sign and plowed into another driver in a Honda Accord. The force of the collision caused one car to sheer off a nearby fire hydrant, sending water spewing into the air. A witness, who phoned 911 after almost being struck by the out of control car, was walking her dog when the collision occurred. “The fire hydrant exploded,” she explained. “I was literally shaking. I almost got run over. When I was on the phone with 911, the accident happened.”

The driver of the Accord died on the scene, while the other driver was arrested on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter. Alcohol is believed to have played a role in the collision. Los Angeles Police Captain, Edward Pape said, “Unfortunately, this is just someone who was driving through the neighborhood, and, out of nowhere, comes a driver who hits them from the side and a life is now taken.”

Drunk driving related fatalities and collisions are an all too common occurrence on the streets of Los Angeles. If you have been impacted by a drunk driver’s reckless actions or lost a loved one as a result, there is hope.
