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

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.

Woman says LAPD officer assaulted her while she was handcuffed in patrol car

Woman says LAPD cop assaulted her while she was handcuffed in patrol car

A 28-year-old woman, who fell out of a moving LAPD police car, has accused an LAPD officer of sexually assaulting her while she was handcuffed in the back seat of the vehicle.

This is just another piece to an already suspicious account. At the time of the alleged assault, the woman was taken into custody on suspicion of public intoxication on March 17.

After being taken into custody, the woman testified that one of the officers climbed into the back seat and began, “assaulting me, molesting me” after a brief stop.

During her disposition, the woman said, “he was grabbing my left inner thigh, you know, trying to – I’m assuming opening my legs, touching my chest, grabbing at it.”

Once the vehicle began moving, around three in the morning, a security camera captured the patrol car pass out of view. Moments later it can be seen on the security camera footage a woman wearing only an undergarment over her chest lying motionless in the street.

The officer’s report stated that the woman had fallen out of the vehicle as the patrol car accelerated to about 10 mph after stopping at a traffic light. The video footage contradicts the officers’ account to the paramedics.

The woman suffered a shattered jaw, severe headaches, and general pain.

Cmdr. Andy Smith, a spokesperson for the LAPD, said an internal investigation was opened immediately after the LAPD Internal Affairs Division was alerted to the woman’s allegations.  The investigation remains open at this time. The two officers remain in the field, Smith said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.

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.

Large pothole damages 30 cars

A large pothole east of downtown Los Angeles damaged more than 30 vehicles Tuesday morning. Traffic was slowed for nearly six hours as drivers tried to warn other commuters of the hazard.

Many of the cars damaged had damaged tires and wheels. It’s believed that the pothole appeared overnight after a semitrailer crash on the same road Monday. The California Highway Patrol is investigating whether the damage is connected to the semitrailer crash.

The pothole was 3-feet wide and appeared on the transition road between the southbound 4 Freeway and the eastbound 10 Freeway.

“All of a sudden, I just hear, ‘boom boom,’” said Vanice Scott, of Lancaster, in an interview with NBC 4. He was one of several drivers who ended up with a flat tire and pulled to the side of the road. “I almost lost control of the car. Lucky I made it over to the side. It was like a chain reaction. Everybody just kept hitting, pulling over. Hitting, pulling over. Hitting, pulling over.”

A law enforcement officer arrived on the scene around 7 a.m. to help drivers avoid the pothole. Traffic was blocked as workers arrived to repair the damaged road. The road was reopened about 2.pm.

Workers said the damage exposed steel bars that reinforce the road’s concrete. Officials said constant traffic may have worsened the damage and caused the pothole.

A man who was in bed was killed early Sunday when a car crashed into his Orange Country home. The driver of the car was arrested and suspected of driving under the influence.

The driver, Kourosh Keshmiri, 27, of Mission Viejo, was arrested on suspicion of felony DUI and may face additional charges, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

Keshmiri was driving on a suspended license due to an already pending DUI case, authorities said.

The red Cadillac Keshmiri was driving crashed through the front of a house in the 2600 block of Pacato Drive in Mission Viejo.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. Family and neighbors identified the man as 60-year-old Ken Jackson. He was described as a motorcycle enthusiast.

The driver and one passenger, who was detained and released, suffered minor injuries, officials said.

The house wad badly damaged. The Cadillac almost went entirely though the front side of the home. A city engineer is needed to determine if the home was safe to live in or not. It could need to be destroyed.

There was another person in the home at the time of the accident, but they were not injured in the incident. The Southern California Gas Company was also called to secure a severed gas line, according to authorities.

This isn’t Keshmiri’s first incident with drunk driving. In August 2010, he was convicted of a misdemeanor DUI. He also has a pending case from June of this year that has led to the suspension of his license.

A driver was rescued from a burning car Wednesday after a crash on the 405 Freeway, authorities said. Two civilians and a Los Angeles Police Department Bomb Squad officer helped rescue the driver.

The single-vehicle crash occurred at 1:52 p.m. on the northbound side of the freeway at Ventura Boulevard. The uniformed Bomb Squad officer and an off-duty battalion chief with the Los Angeles Fire Department happened to drive past the scene, the Los Angeles Fire Department said in a statement.

The battalion chief called 911, and the officer and other motorists rescued the single occupant from the car, authorities said.

The accident happened when an older model Mercedes-Benz station wagon hit the center divider several times after weaving in and out of traffic according to the California Highway Patrol’s Traffic Incident Information website.

After the car crashed, the vehicle was engulfed in flames, the California Highway Patrol website stated. Firefighters responded quickly and extinguished the blaze.

The police officer that helped rescue the driver was treated for minor injuries, but was later taken to an urgent care facility by an LAPD supervisor, authorities said.

The man pulled from the burning car was transported to a nearby hospital with moderate injuries. It’s not known if charges have been filed against the driver, or the status of any impending investigation.

There were two separate car crashes on the San Diego 405 Freeway Friday. A single-vehicle car accident that resulted in a car fire, and a multi-vehicle accident that left one dead shut down multiple lanes in both directions and caused traffic backups.

The first accident, which was a single-vehicle car crash that resulted in a fire in the southbound lane, occurred around 6:30 a.m. The accident shut down the carpool and numbers 1 and 2 lanes, California Highway Patrol Officer Christopher Cracraft said.

The second accident occurred about 15 minutes later when a truck stopped in the northbound lane to avoid hitting a Ford Fusion, fire department spokesperson Brian Humphrey said. This caused a chain reaction as a Ford Mustang hit the truck, which then a Mercedes-Benz struck the Mustang.

The driver of the Mustang, an approximately 65-year-old man, was pronounced dead at the scene. Two other people, a man and a woman, were injured and transported to Northridge Hospital in unknown conditions. The name of the 65-year-old man is being withheld pending notification of the next of kin.

The fatal collision temporarily shut down all northbound traffic, but California Highway Patrol officers then reopened the two far right lanes to help with traffic, Cracraft said. All lanes were reopened by 11:30 a.m.

Both crashes remain under investigation by the California Highway Patrol.

2 killed when LA cruiser crashes into car, officer injured

Two people were killed Saturday when the SUV they were riding in was struck by a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s patrol car in Palmdale, Calif.

Sara Paynter, 20, of Van Nuys and Robert Delgadillo, 31, of Palmdale were the two victims in the accident according to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office. The driver of the SUV sustained minor injuries, and the sheriff’s deputy was taken to the hospital and suffered moderate injuries, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The crash occurred at the corner of Avenue R and 17th Street about 4:30 p.m. Saturday. The victims’ 1994 Ford Explorer was traveling eastbound on Avenue R and the sheriff’s patrol car was heading northbound on 17th Street, authorities said

“For unknown reasons” the SUV entered the intersection “directly in front of” the patrol car, according to a statement from the California Highway Patrol. The patrol car “hit the SUV and caused it to spin out, ejecting the two passengers into the roadway, the statement said.

According to Lt. Ken Wright of the sheriff’s Palmdale station, the speed of the vehicles involved was not immediately known, but did say the deputy was responding to a nearby call.

Multiple media outlets have reported that the deputy’s vehicle did not have its lights and sirens on at the time of the crash, but Wright said he was unfamiliar with the investigation and not able to comment about that.

Investigators told reporters at the scene that they have conflicting witness statements on whether the SUV had stopped at a stop sign and fast the deputy was going at the time of the incident.

The accident is still under investigation by the California Highway Patrol, Wright said.

A high-speed pursuit involving a silver Chevrolet Corvette ended violently Friday when the Corvette collided with another car that ran a red light.

After the crash, the Corvette driver attempted to flee, but LAPD officers who arrived on the scene shot him. It is unclear at this time if non-lethal rounds or bullets were used to subdue the suspect.

The pursuit started around 9:30 p.m. in East Los Angeles. Deputies attempted to stop the driver for alleged reckless driving.

The pursuit went through numerous Los Angeles communities including East Los Angeles, and Bell and Huntington Park. The pursuit ended 60 minutes later at the intersection of Los Angeles Street and Olympic Boulevard when it collided with the other car.

The driver of the Corvette was described to be in his 40s, but that was all the information the police have released so far. An ambulance took the suspect away and the extent of his injuries is currently unknown.

The pursuit involved patrol vehicles from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and California Highway Patrol vehicles before the LAPD became involved and took over.

The condition of the other driver and unknown passengers of the other car involved is still unknown.
