Two cars collided at the intersection of Glendale Boulevard and Montana Street late this morning in the second crash to take place this month at the Echo Park intersection. A northbound silver sedan on Glendale Boulevard slammed into a southbound black BMW that was turning left at the intersection, according to people at the scene. The driver of the BMW had emerged from his vehicle but the other driver remained in the sedan as paramedics arrived at the scene shortly after 12 p.m.
The intersection has been the site of several accidents in recent years, including one that took place on August 3, according to a woman who lives nearby. An employee of the KFC at the corner said some large bushes in the median obscure the vision of drivers who are approaching the intersection.
