SILVER LAKE ––  A Friday night crash  involving four vehicles on Glendale Boulevard near Earl Street resulted in some injuries, according to a resident.

The crash took place at about 7:30 p.m., said Craig Collins, who snapped photos of the scene. He also helped recover tools that flew out of a truck involved in the collision.

An ambulance was on the scene and there were injuries. But officials at the LAPD Central Traffic Division had no details today about the cause of the crash or the nature of the injuries.

  1. Upon viewing Craig Collins’ photos this looks like a bad crash that sent at least one person to hospital via EMT ambulance. It also must have caused some blockage on Glendale. Please tell me that LAPD is still responding to injury-accidents and that for some reason it was just too early to provide details to Eastsider. Thanks for helping out at the scene, Mr. Collins.

    • (Once again it appears that our Eastsider was the only news outlet to report this incident…at least haven’t found other source yet.)

    • Yes, from the pix it looks pretty bad. Any updates?

      • We had a car scratched in the accident (very mild compared to the others). I heard one person had a broken arm, but no other major injuries (can’t confirm). And the driver that caused the accident fled the scene.
        The word is the driver was speeding, passing another car and side-swiped it, sending them fishtailing into oncoming traffic.
        I say add more potholes to slow people down on this stretch. Somethin’.

  2. Nothing to see here, folks. No need for traffic calming, better lighting, etc…. Move along.

  3. i lived above this stretch of road for 10 years and i saw and heard accidents here ALL THE TIME. between the drunk bar hoppers crossing every where and the U turners, it was always a nightmare.

    Seriously. The drunks would think you could see them and they would do the “f-you, you slow down for me” walk, but they were really hard to see because of the oncoming traffic coming up the hill.

    not at all surprised to see this destruction.

    • I’d be more worried about the drunks behind the wheel if I were you.

      • Either are just as dangerous and either are just as likely to cause an accident., especially as described, when they “cross everywhere,” meaning not in the crosswalks. When you cross outside the crosswalks, you create danger.

        • Call me crazy, but I’d rather a stumbling drunk bump into me while they step into their Uber, than crush me under a 2 ton Toyota while I cross the street..

  4. I see’ya all until the next one then….
