The incident began at about 10:30 pm as the driver of a Chrysler PT Cruiser and another vehicle, possibly a Chrysler Sebring, became involved in a dispute as they traveled westbound on Los Feliz Boulevard near Riverside Drive. Here, according to the LAPD Central Traffic Division, is what happened next:
“As they reached the intersection of Tica Drive and Los Feliz Boulevard, the Sebring cut off the PT Cruiser, and began to stop in front of the Pt Cruiser. To avoid a collision, the PT Cruiser swerved to the left, onto eastbound Los Feliz Boulevard traffic, and became involved in a head-on- collision with an Infiniti G35. The driver of the Sebring fled the scene after the collision, failed to stop to render aid or identify themselves since they influenced the collision.”
One person from the PT Cruiser was injured while four were injured in the Infiniti, police said in a statement. One teenage victim who suffered severe head injuries is in critical condition but stable condition. Four others sustained severe injuries but they are not considered life threatening.
The car that fled the scene is described as possible white, four-door Chrysler Sebring that was being driven by a white male.
