Three people were injured in a car accident in Tarzana, which officials say, involved a suspected drunk driver. According to a news report in the Los Angeles Times, the crash occurred the afternoon of March 5, 2017 near North Yolanda Avenue and Clark Street. Police said a blue Honda Civic was traveling west on Clark Street at 50 mph in a 25-mph zone. The car struck several parked vehicles and a total of three people including two pedestrians and a woman in her car.
All three victims were transported to a local hospital. One person was listed in critical condition while the other two suffered serious injuries. Police said all three are expected to survive. The driver was arrested on suspicion of felony driving under the influence. As the police escorted the man to a patrol car, he apparently looked at TV cameras recording the accident scene and told them to “Make it go viral.” The driver reportedly refused to submit to tests to determine his blood alcohol concentration.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the three victims of this DUI crash who have suffered severe injuries. We wish them the very best for a quick and full recovery. Continue reading →
