How did it happen ?
According to police ''speed was a factor'' in a seven car chain reaction collision that killed a woman on Ventura Blvd in Tarzana late Monday night. She hasn't been identified and apparently a row of cars was at a light waiting to make a turn, when the suspect vehicle hit them from behind. One of the cars in the center essentially got crunched and that's where the victim died.
Police say no arrests have been made and one thing
that's more than a little unusual is according to Police and witnesses
and a store clerk, the man who allegedly caused the accident went into the
nearby Chevron station to buy some beer, threw some money down on the counter,
and then went out. What does that mean ? Not sure. Police say
that they've actually heard of that before, when people are stressed after an
accident... I have to say I haven't have you ? Meantime, at the risk of
stating the obvious, Police remind us.. slow down.
(FOX 11 / AP) Los Angeles police are investigating reports that a suspected drunken driver bought beer just minutes after a collision involving seven vehicles that left a woman dead.
City News Service says a woman in her 60s was killed on impact in the crash at an intersection in the Tarzana area late Monday.
Officer Olga Arriaga says the suspect, driving a gray Ford Taurus, slammed into the rear of a vehicle, causing a seven-car pileup. Occupants of the other cars complained of neck and back pain but no serious injuries were reported.
Witnesses say after the crash the suspect walked into a convenience store, bought a six pack of beer and began drinking it outside the store while police arrived.
The suspect is in custody and being questioned. His name was not immediately released.
