Los Angeles, CA (August 18, 2020) – A hit-and-run accident in the 7100 block of Foothill Boulevard in Tujunga caused the death of an elderly man in the early morning hours of Monday, August 17th.

The deadly collision took place at around 1:40 a.m. 

Local law enforcement officers stated that the accident occurred when a black BMW, being driven by a male at a high rate of speed in the southbound lanes of Foothill Boulevard, near the Pinewood Avenue intersection, collided headfirst with a blue Hyundai Elantra being driven by a man in his 80s.

The force of the impact was strong enough to force the Hyundai, which was an out-of-state rental car, into some nearby traffic barriers.

Officials from the local fire and rescue department along with local paramedics reported to the crash site where they pronounced the driver of the Elantra dead at the scene.

The identity of the deceased victim remains undisclosed. 

In the meantime, the driver of the BMW failed to pull over after the accident and fled the scene.

Police have confirmed that about three hours later he did turn himself in and was taken into custody. They have also identified the two passengers in the BMW and are questioning them concerning the accident.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.

The news report stated that a silver 2010 Chevrolet Equinox hit a pedestrian in the eastbound lanes of Highway 18, a little west of Tao Road.

At approximately 8:30 p.m., emergency first response teams reported to the scene of the accident, which took place in front of the Car and Dog Wash. On their arrival, they discovered the pedestrian lying in the roadway.

Emergency medical personnel pronounced the victim dead at the scene. They confirmed that the pedestrian died as a result of injuries caused by the impact.

All eastbound lanes of traffic between Tao Road and Corwin Road were closed off by deputies from the Apple Valley Police Department in order to facilitate a professional inquiry into cause and liability for the accident.

Bakersfield, CA (August 17, 2020) – A car accident on the Interstate 5 Freeway resulted in the deaths of two of the people involved and caused injuries to two others on the afternoon of Sunday, August 16th.

As stated in a report published by a local news source, the deadly two-vehicle collision took place at about 3:00 p.m., north of Highway 166 when a Ford F-150 pick-up truck heading southbound along Interstate 5 collided with a Honda SUV that was heading northbound.

The driver of the F-150 swerved to avoid running over debris in the roadway, which caused them to lose control of the truck, swerve across the centerline and into the northbound lanes, where they collided head-first with the oncoming Honda.

Officers from the California Highway Patrol said that the pick-up also crashed into a tractor-trailer. The Honda rolled over, veered off the righthand side of the road, and landed in an orchard as a result of the impact.

Officers confirmed that two parties riding the Honda died as a result of the crash. Paramedics rushed the third occupant to a hospital with unspecified injuries.

Emergency medical personnel attending the scene transported the driver of the Ford to a nearby medical facility with injuries that were classified as minor. 

The identities of the dead and wounded remain unreported at this time.

In the meantime, crash investigators from the California Highway Patrol shut down Interstate 5 at the transition for Highway 99 for several hours after the accident in order to facilitate their professional inquiry into cause and liability for the incident. 

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victims at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.

Fresno Co, CA (August 17, 2020) –  A passenger was killed during a DUI car accident along Highway 198 on the afternoon of Saturday, August 15th.

Initial incident reports filed by local law enforcement show that 28-year-old Francisco Munoz, a resident of Los Angeles, was driving a silver Toyota Corolla that was heading eastbound along SR-198. As Munoz got close to the stretch of road near Parkfield Grade, he lost control of the vehicle and spun out into a dirt causeway.

Police logs indicate that the accident took place at about 4:10 p.m.

When emergency first response crews arrived at the scene of the accident, they discovered that the passenger in the front seat had sustained critical injuries during the crash. 

Emergency medical personnel transported the injured victim to a local trauma center, but the passenger died along the way. The name of the deceased victim remains unreported at this time, as police are awaiting confirmation and the notification of their next of kin.

In the meantime, Munoz is reported to have suffered moderate injuries as a result of the accident. Local law enforcement officers placed Munoz under arrest after they determined that he was operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

This accident is still under professional inquiry by crash investigators from local law enforcement officers at this time.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
