Sylmar, CA – Teen Fatally Injured in Head-On Crash on Foothill Blvd
Sylmar, CA (November 29, 2022) – The Los Angeles Police Department is actively investigating a fatal collision that took place on Sunday in the Sylmar area. On November 27, the LAPD was notified that a crash occurred in the area of 13820 Foothill Boulevard.
Just before noon, a silver Toyota pickup truck and a Prius collided head-on on Foothill Boulevard. Preliminary reports show that a Prius was leaving the parking lot at the VR time market when a teen was driving down the roadway at the same time. In order to avoid a collision with the vehicle that pulled out onto the roadway, the driver of the vehicle swerved and collided head-on with the pickup truck.
A teen involved in the accident was fatally injured. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
A 56-year-old man involved in the accident was rushed to a nearby hospital for emergency care.
At this time, the Los Angeles Police Department is investigating.
We hope the man hurt in this crash recovers quickly.
Our condolences are with the family of the teen who lost his life in this crash.
