Hollywood, CA (September 28, 2020) – This past Thursday evening, September 24, a truck drove through a crowd of BLM protesters who had gathered for a march through Hollywood.
The group of protesters gathered at the Forever Hollywood Cemetery around 7:00 p.m. and marched together through the streets. They made their way to Sunset Boulevard where a dark-colored pick-up truck accelerated speed among the protesters as other drivers yielded the right of way to the group.
While accelerating speed, the truck struck at least one person, hurling them back onto the pavement. The truck then took off down Sunset Boulevard, almost hitting several other people who leaped out of the way of the speeding vehicle.
Paramedics were dispatched to the scene of the collision at approximately 9:00 p.m. in order to render aid to the injured victim, who remains unidentified at this time.
The crash occurred at the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Seward Street for reasons still being determined by the Los Angeles Police Department.
At least one individual was transported to a nearby medical center for the treatment of injuries of an unknown magnitude.
No further information has been disclosed at this time, and it is unclear whether or not any charges will be filed against the driver of the truck.
We would like to extend our thoughts to the injured victim and their family in hopes of a full recovery.
An investigation into the details of the wreck is currently underway.
California Pedestrian Accidents
On average, approximately 900 people lose their lives annually due to pedestrian crashes in the state of California. Thousands of others are forced to deal with painful and debilitating injuries due to these accidents. Pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable travelers present on the roadway at any given time due to their obvious lack of protection against other vehicles. Pedestrians are at an increased risk of sustaining injuries in traffic accidents, such as broken bones, brain/spinal cord injuries, and other debilitating and life-altering injuries.
Usually, pedestrians injured in traffic collisions require immediate and emergency medical treatment that can cost a fortune.
