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.

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.

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.

More people now die of suicide than in car accidents

More people now die of suicide than in car accidents

Source: (IIHS)

In the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, released in May, there were 33,687 deaths from car accidents and 38,364 suicides in 2010.

Suicide, typically viewed as an issue with teens and the elderly, is increasing amongst middle-aged Americans, ages 35-64; many baby boomers are facing economic uncertainty that is then combined with easy access to prescription painkillers. Poisoning deaths were up 24 percent over the 10-year period from 1999 to 2010.

From 1999 to 2010, the suicide rate among Americans ages 35 to 64 rose by nearly 30 percent, to 17.6 deaths per 100,000 people, up from 13.7. While suicide rate is up amongst both middle-aged men and women, the suicide rate for middle-aged men was 27.3 deaths per 100,000, while for women it was 8.1 deaths per 100,000.

“It is the baby boomer group where we see the highest rates of suicide,” said the C.D.C.’s deputy director, Ileana Arias, in an interview with The New York Times. “There may be something about that group, and how they think about life issues and their life choices that may make a difference.” Dr. Arias noted that the higher suicide rates might be due to a series of life and financial circumstances unique to the baby boomer generation. They are often coping with caring for aging parents while still providing financial and emotional support to adult children.

The increase in suicides is unsettling as there is still a stigma around it.

Four killed in Compton car crash after police pursuit

Four killed in Compton car crash after police pursuit

Four people were killed Saturday when a high-speed pursuit by Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies ended with the pursued car slamming into another vehicle.

The accident happened about 12:30 a.m. at the intersection of West Greenleaf Boulevard and South Wilmington Avenue in Compton, said Sheriff’s Sgt. Peter Ramirez. The pursuit started after the car was pulled over. Deputies believed the vehicle matched a description of a vehicle used in a shooting that had just occurred. The car sped off once the deputies exited their cruiser.

The deputies pursued the vehicle for about two miles when the car ran a red light and crashed into another vehicle. The suspect’s vehicle slammed into a light pole, a brick wall, and a garage and flipped over before catching fire.

The other vehicle involved in the crash, a Chevrolet Monte Carlo, veered out of control and hit another wall. Only one person was in that vehicle.

Only one victim was identified by late Saturday, but it wasn’t clear which vehicle Stacey Garcia, 30, of Los Angeles, was in.

Several family members at the scene told The Los Angeles Times that two of the people in the pursued car were Larry Gilmore, 35, and Shawnice Osborne, 20.

“It’s terrible to see two cars so mangled up,” said Keith Wright in an interview with The Times, who said he was Gilmore’s brother.

The events unfolded after a report of “multiple shots fired” came from the 100 block of West Indigo Street in Compton, Ramirez said.

The shooting, pursuit, and accident are all under investigation.

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.
