Three people sustained injuries in a Los Angeles car accident the night of February 5, 2010 after the driver of a vehicle lost control and crashed at a busy intersection. According to a KTLA News report, the injury crash happened at the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue when a car that was northbound on Highland struck another vehicle pushing it into a light pole. A woman who was walking on the roadway was pinned between the pole and the vehicle that was hit. She was transported to an area hospital with serious injuries including a possibly severed leg. Two others also sustained injuries and were transported to a hospital.
I sympathize with all those who were injured in this car accident. I especially pray for the pedestrian, who was the most seriously injured. I hope her injuries were not catastrophic. Please keep this injured victim in your prayers.
