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, 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.

One person was killed Thursday morning in a car crash that and ended up at the bottom of the concrete-walled Tujunga Wash.

The vehicle, a 2008 black Cadillac, apparently went off the 101 Freeway, plowed through some trees and bushes before crashing through a chain-link fence and ending up on its side in the bottom of the wash.

The driver died at the scene. The victim has been identified as a 31-year-old male from Woodland Hills, says California Highway Patrol Officer Leland Tang.

Police are investigating the cause of the crash. It is not clear what caused the vehicle to veer off the 101 Freeway that sent it into the Wash. Another vehicle may have been involved in the accident.

Fire Station 86 discovered the vehicle around 7:15 a.m. By 7:30 a.m., the Los Angeles Fire Department tweeted that a fatal crash had occurred at the 4300 block of Vineland Ave.

The Tujunga Wash, where the car crashed, is considered a tributary of the Los Angeles River. It’s a 13-mile long stream and located just south of the crash site.

The police didn’t have any more information and have not released the name of the victim. The crash is still under investigation.

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.

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.
