A black Dodge Ram pick up truck hit two parked cars in the 4300 block of York Boulevard  in Eagle Rock early Saturday evening. The driver was taken away by paramedics following the collision that took place at about 6:20 p.m., said Steve Ascencio who lives near the scene.

The truck first sideswiped a silver Nissan before crashing into a purple Honda. Both were unoccupied.

It’s not clear what caused the crash but Ascensio warned about hazardous conditions along this stretch of York:

This highlights the problems on a street where excessive speed is the norm and poor lighting frequently contributes to traffic collisions. In addition, the intersection of York Blvd, York Hill, and Ellenwood Dr has been confusing drivers for years.
