Good Evening!

It's Monday, December 2. Today's forecast calls for partly cloudy skies and highs in the mid to upper 60s.

Here are some of the headlines, news and notes that popped up on our radar and in our inbox today.

An SUV crashed into an empty storefront on Sunset Boulevard near Portia Street in Echo Park this morning. The red Ford SUV smashed through a window in the Brick Works, a new shopping complex now under construction on Sunset. A police officer at the scene said no one was hurt.

And more car carnage ... an Eastsider tipster emailed a photo today of the four parked cars in the 3500 Block of Griffin Avenue that were damaged after being struck by a northbound driver on late Friday night or early Saturday morning. The "offending vehicle was believed to be dark Chevy SUV," said our anonymous tipster.
