Los Angeles, CA (May 31, 2020) – One person is in the hospital following a car accident at the intersection of Jefferson Boulevard and Budlong Avenue on Friday, May 30th.
Police were notified of a collision near Exposition Park at about 12:35 a.m. when a white sedan and an SUV crashed into one another for reasons that have yet to be determined.
The sedan collided with a nearby traffic light and eventually came to rest after it smashed into the side of a building.
Fire and rescue crews reported to the site, where they had to use the jaws of life to free the driver of the sedan from the debris.
Paramedics then transported the injured man to a local hospital with undefined injuries.
Both the passenger and the driver of the SUV declined medical treatment.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Los Angeles
The three most widespread factors behind in-state car accidents are speeding, inattentive driving, and driving while under the influence. Even with laws in place that specifically forbid the use of cellular phones while driving, four-fifths, or about 80%, of all motor vehicle collisions in California are due to some manner of distracted driving. In the United States, upwards of 3,000 people die each year in collisions that stem directly from distracted driving.
