The streets of Hancock Park witnessed a terrible tragedy early this morning. The photo above shows part of the devastation.
A driver heading eastbound on Beverly Boulevard near Formosa Avenue apparently lost control of her car and hit several pedestrians and parked cars. One man was killed; two were critically injured and transported to Cedars Sinai Medical Center.
The female driver, who wasn’t hurt, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. The street was blocked off to traffic for hours.
It’s hard to believe that in this day and age, there are still drivers who drink and get behind the wheel. This driver will face some very serious charges.
It’s the beginning of the New Year, and many people are continuing to celebrate with family and friends.
But remember that buzzed driving is still drunk driving.
Hail a taxi. Call an Uber. Walk.
Whatever you do, don’t get behind the wheel! You might just save someone’s life.
