Westmont, CA – Charlton Caldwell Killed & One hurt in Crash at 106th St & Vermont Ave

Westmont, CA (July 12, 2020) – A 45-year-old man identified as Charlton Caldwell, of Compton, was killed in a crash involving three vehicles on Saturday night, July 11th, in the Westmont neighborhood of Los Angeles. The fatal accident happened at the intersection of 106th Street and Vermont Avenue around 9:35 p.m.

According to the California Highway Patrol, two white 2007 BMWs collided at the intersection after one of them went through a stop sign. Caldwell, who was operating a 2007 black Saab 20T, was unable to avoid the crash and ultimately struck a concrete median and a tree.

Emergency medical responders were dispatched to the scene where Caldwell was pronounced deceased. One other person involved, identified only as a 39-year-old man from Los Angeles, was transported to Centinela Hospital Medical Center in Inglewood with non-life-threatening injuries.

The CHP continues to investigate the events that led to this incident.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Charlton Caldwell at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and his family in hopes of a full recovery.
