Man Dies in West Hollywood Police Car Accident

By Robert Kahn on October 23, 2015 - Comments off

Police car accidentA West Hollywood patrol car was involved in a serious  car accident that killed one man and injured three others. As reported by NBC 4, the crash took place on the corner of Santa Monica and San Vicente in Hollywood. 

Officers were responding to a domestic violence call when they clipped the back end of a Lexus crossing the intersection. The Lexus was violently spun onto the sidewalk where it struck two pedestrians, pinning one man under the car. The 27-year old man died at the scene. 

Another injured pedestrian, a 39-year old employee of USC, was taken to the hospital in critical condition. The deputy riding in the patrol car’s passenger side had to be extracted from the vehicle. Both officers were taken to the hospital, where they remained for several days. 

The California Highway Patrol is currently investigating whether excessive speed is to blame for the collision. An early report indicated that the patrol car did have both its sirens and lights on at the time of the crash. 

While police and other government agencies are considered immune to legal action when it comes to negligent car crashes happening in the line of duty, there are exceptions to the rule.  If you or a loved one has been injured in accident with a government vehicle, call Kahn Roven, LLP to discuss your options.
