Los Angeles, CA – Seven Hurt in Potomac Ave Crash near Obama Blvd
Los Angeles, CA (September 13, 2023) – A motor vehicle accident was reported in the Baldwin Hills neighborhood that sent several people to local hospitals with injuries.
The crash occurred just after 4:00 p.m. on September 11.
According to reports from the Los Angeles police department, authorities attempted to stop a BMW for traffic violations when the driver failed to yield. As the vehicle passed through the intersection of Potomac Avenue and Obama Boulevard, it ran a stop sign and slammed into a second vehicle. The impact of the crash caused the second vehicle to overturn and careen off the roadway. The vehicle came to rest in the front yard of a nearby residential structure.
A total of seven people were injured due to the crash. The victims are all transported to area hospitals for emergency care.
Two people in the BMW fled the scene of the crash on foot. Authorities later apprehended one of the suspects.
At this time, the incident is being investigated.
We hope all of the injured victims are able to recover quickly.
