Los Angeles, CA – Pedestrian Loses Life in Crash on E Rosecrans Ave
Los Angeles, CA (July 28, 2023) – A pedestrian has died as a result of a crash that occurred in the Compton area early Thursday morning, July 27.
At around 2:30 a.m., the Los Angeles Police Department and firefighters rushed to the scene of a crash that occurred on East Rosecrans Avenue.
According to local news sources, an SUV was traveling in the 2200 block of the roadway during the early morning hours. For unknown reasons, the driver lost control and went off the roadway, striking a bus stop bench near North Harris Avenue. The vehicle also struck a tree and a fire hydrant before finally coming to a stop down the road.
A pedestrian was sleeping on the bench at the time of the accident. The pedestrian, who has not been identified, was fatally wounded in the accident.
Authorities confirmed that a female inside the SUV, identified only as a passenger, was severely injured. She was rushed to a local hospital for emergency care.
The SUV driver was detained by law enforcement. At this time, the incident is being investigated.
We hope the injured woman recovers quickly.
We offer our sympathies to the family of the man who died in this crash.
Fatal Auto Accidents in California
Every single day, a significant number of individuals have their lives turned upside down completely as a result of car accidents occurring right here in California. In the majority of cases, these accidents are a direct result of the careless and irresponsible actions of other drivers. Several key factors contribute to the occurrence of these accidents throughout our state:
- Speeding: Drivers who exceed the posted speed limits pose a significant threat to fellow road users. Speeding motorists are more likely to lose control of their vehicles, drifting into other lanes and colliding with other cars. In addition, they tend to cause more severe damage and devastation in the accidents they cause.
- Failure to yield: Accidents often occur when drivers neglect to yield to others, leading to life-altering injuries for the victims. Unfortunately, we witness numerous accidents caused by drivers who fail to yield when entering roadways, changing lanes, or even approaching intersections.
- Running red lights: Drivers who disregard red lights and fail to stop at intersections create situations where they collide with other vehicles and cause significant damage. It is the responsibility of drivers to obey traffic signals and allow other vehicles to pass through safely. Sadly, we see far too many serious accidents resulting from drivers who neglect this duty.
Unfortunately, these acts of negligence take the lives of thousands of people in California each year.
