Suspected DUI driver crashes car into home

Suspected DUI driver crashes car into home

A suspected drunk driver crashed his vehicle into an Orange County home, according to police. The accident happened early Wednesday morning just before 2 a.m. at the intersection of Jacaranda Ave. and Myrtlewood St. in Costa Messa.

The driver of the car, 25-year-old Lawrence Smith allegedly failed to make a turn, crashing through the wall between the  homeowner’s master bedroom and a spare bedroom.

“It was a loud noise and when I woke up, it was just debris and dust everywhere,” Don Vanderwal said in an interview with CBS Los Angeles. “Honestly, I thought it was an earthquake and the house was falling apart.”

Vanderwal’s wife, 44, suffered minor facial lacerations. She was taken to Hoag Hospital.

There was a passenger in Smith’s car, a 24-year-old male, who was also injured and transported to Western Medical Center for treatment of chest pains.

Smith, of Costa Mesa, was arrested on suspicion of felony DUI, according to police officials. He is being held on $100,000 bail.

“I’m angry. Obviously a few feet, one way or another, and my wife or I or my kids could be dead right now,” said Vanderwal.

Around 8:24 p.m. Thursday, an unidentified man was reported to be running in and out of traffic smashing a metal weapon on car windows, according to one driver.

“[I thought], ‘Oh my God, get me out of here.’ It was a scary feeling,” Priscilla Garcia told CBS LA of the moment she says the man came upon her car.

“When he did that, I looked at the cops to do something because he was not going to stop,” she said.

The man ignored orders once deputies arrived on the scene, continued his attack in the intersection of Shangri-La Drive and Soledad Canyon Road in Canyon County.

Police then opened fire on the man, shooting him multiple times in the chest after he charged at them with a knife. According to a press release, the man “appeared unscathed by the shooting,” and “continued his erratic behavior.”

The deputies then stepped back toward their squad cars when the man, now wielding a second weapon of a knife, charged at them again.

“The suspect was struck by gunfire multiple times on the upper torso,” according to officials.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said no one else was harmed during the incident.

Bankers looses lawsuit against Los Angeles police officers

Bankers looses lawsuit against Los Angeles police officers

Brian Mulligan lost a lawsuit against two Los Angeles Police Department officers after a jury cleared them Friday of any wrongdoing in an arrest.

Mulligan, a former bank executive, alleged that he was a victim of excessive police force, testifying that LAPD officers John Miller and James Nichols beat him in 2012.

The defense showed evidence that Mulligan was in a drug-induced psychotic state. Apparently, he snorted “bath salts,” an amphetamine-like drug, prior to the arrest. Two days before his encounter with LAPD officers Miller and Nichols, Mulligan was recorded telling a Glendale police officer he had snorted the drug.

Mulligan testified that after his encounter with the Glendale officer, he went to Eagle Rock to get medical marijuana. Numerous witnesses testified that on the night of his LAPD encounter in May 2012, he was alone and yelling; trying to open car doors and saying someone was following him.

When the two officers responded, Mulligan passed a field sobriety test. The officers testified that Mulligan wanted to go to a motel and sleep it off, but an hour later, he was found in the middle of traffic trying to carjack a moving vehicle.

The prosecution claimed Mulligan didn’t deserve to be beaten regardless of his mental state at the time. Doctors had differing opinions on whether a baton caused Mulligan’s injuries. It was not known if the injuries were sustained when he resisted arrest and slammed his own face on the pavement. The defense noted Nichols did not have his baton at the time of Mulligan’s arrest.

Retired NBA and TV analyst for Time Warner Cable SportsNet Robert Horry was unhurt after the car he was driving struck a motorcycle on a Los Angeles freeway. The accident left the motorcycle rider hospitalized.

The accident happened Tuesday afternoon after Horry’s 2014 Infiniti collided with the 2013 Yamaha motorcycle driven by Xerxes Baldonasa of Long Beach, the California Highway Patrol said Wednesday. The accident happened on the 105 Freeway near Inglewood.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Baldonasa, 44, was treated for moderate injuries at a local hospital. Horry, 44, didn’t receive any injuries. No arrests have been made at this time.

According to the police, Baldonasa was riding his motorcycle between two sets of double yellow lines that separate the car pool lane from the other lanes. Horry was attempting to change from the left lane into the car-pool lane, and crossed over the double yellow lines. This caused him to collide with Baldonasa’s motorcycle.

The accident remains under investigation according to officials familiar with the case.

Horry is famous for playing for the Lakers from 1997 to 2003, and making clutch shots in big, important games. He won seven NBA Championships with the Lakers, Houston, and San Antonio. He also spent some time playing for Phoenix during his 16-year career, which ended in 2008.

A 60-year-old woman was hospitalized after being hit by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s vehicle Tuesday.

The black SUV, which was being driven by a LAPD police officer at the time, struck the woman at the intersection of 2nd and Spring Street while the vehicle was traveling east on 2nd towards City Hall. The authorities declined to identify the victim.

According to officials, the woman was alert and stable before she was rushed to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center for treatment.

“I’m very concerned about her and wish her a speedy recovery,” Garcetti said in a statement. “I look forward to speaking with her soon.”

According to security camera footage, two people got out of Garcetti’s vehicle to check on the pedestrian. Two minutes after the accident Garcetti’s vehicle pulled away. By this time, the LAPD driver had checked on the condition of the woman, talked to the officers on the scene about what had happened, and determined paramedics were on the way.

Garcetti was then taken to City Hall, but were available for interviews once investigators were ready, said Police Cmdr. Andrew Smith in an interview with Los Angeles Times.

After Garcetti was dropped off, the officer who was driving returned the vehicle to the scene.

“This, by all appearances, was a relatively minor collision, except that the mayor’s driver was involved,” Smith said in an interview with Los Angeles Times.

The accident is still under investigation.

Jay Glaser

Jay Glaser, 50, of rolling Hills Estates, died early Saturday morning in a car accident when his car crashed and plunged off an embankment.

The accident occurred around 2:40 a.m. Saturday, according to the Torrance Police Department. Responding officers and units found Glaser’s 2011 Audi R8 had collided with the west curb while traveling southbound on Palos Verdes Boulevard.

They found Glaser alone in the vehicle and pronounced him dead at the scene.

Glaser was a longtime Long Beach criminal defense attorney and his death has sent shock waves through the local, legal community.

“He was a zealous advocate for his clients and he was an extraordinarily capable attorney,” said Douglas Haubert, Long Beach City Prosecutor and one of Glaser’s friends, in an interview with Press-Telegram. “He was probably one of the most skillful attorneys I’ve ever met. I’d say he was one of the top five criminal defense attorneys in Long Beach.”

Glaser was one of three partners at the Law Offices of Glaser, Damone and Schroeder, and Long Beach-based firm.

“I’ve known Jay since law school,” Damone said in an interview with Press-Telegram. “We graduated in 1988 (from the Southwestern University School of Law). He went into the Public Defender’s Office, then in 1993 we started our practice together as Glaser and Damone.”

Glaser leaves behind a wife and three children.

The accident is being investigated by the Torrance Police Department’s Traffic Division under the command of Capt. Bernard Anderson, Commander of the Special Operations Bureau.

Fiery crash becomes a story of survival for six

Six people were lucky to be alive after a high-speed, fiery crash Monday on Interstate 8 in the East Country.

Around 10:15 a.m. on westbound Interstate 8 between Pine Valley and Descanso, a San Diego Man in a Ford Expedition made an unsafe lane change, clipping the front of a motorhome. The two vehicles veered off the road and over the side, hitting the bottom of a steep, rocky ravine and then bursting into flames.

The motorhome was carrying a Colorado Springs man, his wife, and their three children.

“Multiple situations could’ve happened,” said U.S. Forest Service Battalion Chief Jason Kraling, whose crews responded to the incident, in an interview with NBC San Diega. “We’re just thankful that it turned out the way that it did, that these folks were able to make their way up the hill.”

Everyone inside both vehicles managed to escape without being burned. They then scrambled up the hill as paramedics and firefighters arrived.

“Luckily, no one was seriously injured out of all of this,” said California Highway Patrol spokesman Kevin Pearlstein in an interview with NBC San Diego. “We’ve had several crashes where recreational vehicles just open up like a can, is basically what happens. You peel the can; whatever’s in there just goes wherever. So, very lucky.”

Injuries ranged from a gashed forehead suffered by the woman to mild and moderate bodily injuries for the rest. All were treated at Sharp Memorial Hospital.

The accident remains under investigation and no charges have been filed as of yet.

A teen was killed when the car he and four other passengers were riding in crashed violently early Saturday morning. The teen killed was identified as 17-year-old Daniel Solis, of Downey.

The crash happened shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday on Rosecrans Ave. and Lakewood Blvd. According to a statement from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the driver hit a curb and wrought-iron fence, causing the vehicle to roll over onto its roof, and then crash into a tree.

It’s suspected the driver was traveling at a high rate of speed when he lost control. Alcohol is also being considered a contributing factor.

Four out of five people were ejected from the car during the crash. All were taken to nearby hospitals. Solis was listed in critical condition, but later died. The other four passengers were all listed in stable condition and are expected to make a full recovery and survive.

No other information of those involved in the accident was readily available, officials said.

The driver of the car, 22-year-old Eddie Solis and brother to the deceased Daniel Solis, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and vehicular manslaughter, according to authorities.

The crash remains under investigation by officials.
