Four people were killed and two were injured in a Los Angeles area car accident after their vehicle went out of control and flew off the 134 Freeway. According to the Los Angeles Times, the fatal crash occurred the night of August 12, 2012 on the 134 Freeway in Eagle Rock. California Highway Patrol officials say a 1999 Ford Expedition that was traveling east in the far left lane hit an asphalt curb, rolled twice and fell through the space between the bridges and about 35 feet onto North Figueroa Street.
Witnesses told officials that the Expedition’s driver lost control after a problem with one of the tires. Tire debris was coming off the vehicle before it rolled, officials said. Three people including a 11-year-old girl, a man and a woman died at the scene. Another man died later at the hospital. Two others, a woman and a 6-year-old girl who was thrown from the SUV before it fell off the freeway, remain hospitalized. An investigation is ongoing.
I offer my deepest condolences to the family members and friends of these deceased car accident victims. My thoughts and prayers are also with the seriously injured victims. I wish them the very best for a speedy and complete recovery.
