  • Caltrans and a tire retailer reached a $10 million settlement in connection with a 2012 crash on the 134 Freeway in Eagle Rock that killed four people. The SUV carrying members of a La Puente family  rolled over a center divider and plunged more than 30 feet to the ground near Figueroa Street after a tire blew out. The wrongful death lawsuit alleged that the tires and highway design were defective. City News Service
  • A 21-year-old man was in critical condition after  coming in contact with live wires near Whittier Boulevard and the 101 Freeway in Boyle Heights. The man’s attorney and family blames the LADWP but the agency said the incident might be related to an act of vandalism. KTLA
