One woman was injured in Silver Lake last night when her car swerved off Sunset Boulevard and smashed into a telephone pole near Lucile Avenue, according to a neighborhood resident. Bich Ngoc Cao, who snapped photos of the accident scene, provided more details about the midnight crash:
A police officer at the scene said that the driver was lucky to be alive when she was taken away by ambulance, though he said he wasn’t sure if she would survive the accident. He described that she was bleeding out of her ears, nose and mouth and was unconscious when found. I’m glad no one else was hurt, and I hope the driver is healing.
The Eastsider is checking with LAPD’s Central Traffic Bureau for additional information.
