A woman named Staci from Angeleno Heights reports being awakened early this morning by a crashing sound on Kensington Road between Marion Avenue and Douglas Street. She looked out her window to see a car on its side:
Just about 15 minutes ago I heard a crash so loud that I woke up jumping out my skin. I looked outside my bedroom window and saw a car completely on it’s side, perpendicular to the road, and one or two people who seemed to be running out of their houses. As I scrambled to find my cell I saw more and more people come out into the street. An ambulance came up from the west and a firetruck from the east just about 6 minutes after that, at about 1 am. Hope everyone is okay.
The incident took place at about 1 a.m. The Eastsider is checking with authorities for details.
* Update: The driver responsible for the crash was driving too fast and lost control, hitting packed cars, said Lt. Wes Buhrmester with the Rampart Division. The driver passed a sobriety test but his license has been revoked, Buhrmester said in a comment to this post.
