3 Family Members, Including Child, Hospitalized After South L.A. Pursuit Crash 9-4-2017

Our law firm is currently investigating an incident that occurred September 4, 2017.

According to local authorities, sometime after 11 p.m. Los Angeles Police Department officers began pursuing a possible stolen vehicle. During the chase, police received notice that driver of the car may have been involved in an assault with a deadly weapon. Sometime afterward, the vehicle traveled southbound on Central Avenue when it cut through the intersection at Gage Avenue and slammed into another vehicle.

The occupants of the second vehicle were a man, a woman, and a 5-year-old child. This second car struck a fence after the collision and came to rest. LAPD Fire Department arrived at the scene sometime before 11:15 p.m.

According to Los Angeles Police Department Detective Meghan Aguilar, the crash was, “very serious.” The occupants of the second vehicle had sustained severe injuries, and paramedics did their best to treat the victims. The woman and child were sent to the hospital due to the severity of their injuries; the man was also transported and in serious condition.

After the first collision, the pursuit vehicle continued southbound, where it eventually crashed into a parked car and came to a stop. Six people were in the pursuit vehicle and were all juveniles with ages ranging from 13 to 17 years old. Detective Aguilar described them as four boys and two girls. All of the suspects were medically treated at the scene; the Los Angeles Fire Department reported a total of nine people were injured in the crash.

The juvenile suspects have been taken to the police station, where authorities are still trying to discern how to charge the teenagers. It was later confirmed that the vehicle was indeed stolen, and as such the suspects will likely be accused of stolen vehicle charges, as well as other damages the youth had caused.
