Woman Killed in DUI Crash at Century Boulevard and Olive Street in South Los Angeles

Woman Dies in South Los Angeles Car Accident at Century Boulevard and Olive Street

Los Angeles, California (April 20, 2020) – A woman was killed Sunday morning in an alleged DUI car accident at an intersection in South Los Angeles, according to a local news source.

The fatal crash took place at around 3:45 a.m. Sunday, April 19 at the intersection of Century Boulevard and Olive Street.

Authorities said a woman in her 30s was driving a vehicle northbound on Olive Street when she allegedly ran a red light at the intersection and hit two vehicles. The force of the impact caused one of those two vehicles to slam into a light signal and eject the female motorist.

The woman was declared dead at the scene. Her name has not been disclosed pending notification of family.

The woman who caused the crash was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries. She was later arrested on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence of either alcohol or drugs.

The accident remains under investigation.

According to Arin Khodaverdian, the Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group, a separate investigation by an experienced attorney is necessary to clearly uncover the circumstances surrounding the collision. “An attorney will also help the victim to navigate all the legal processes in pursuit of fair compensation and justice. Car accident claims are rarely straightforward, and, regardless of the circumstances involved, liable insurance companies will often do everything possible to limit their out-of-pocket expenses by either devaluing or outright denying your claim. It is crucial, therefore, that you have an experienced attorney on your side,” said Arin.

What to Do At the Accident Scene

Nobody is ever prepared for an accident. However, knowing what to do in case you are involved in the accident is very crucial. The following steps will help you ensure your safety and the safety of others.

  1. Stay at the scene and don’t panic.
  2. Check for injuries and immediately call for an ambulance if anyone is hurt.
  3. Notify the police even if no one is injured. The police will examine the scene and document the accident. At this point, it is important to record accurate information. You can later request a police report.
  4. If the accident is minor, it is advisable to move the vehicles to the shoulder and turn on your vehicle’s hazard lights to ensure the safety of other motorists.
  5. Gather information about the other drivers involved in the accident. Also, talk to witnesses and get their information.
  6. If possible, take photos of the damage to your car and the surrounding area.
  7. Do not admit fault or discuss the accident with anyone. Do not sign any papers unless requested by the police.
  8. Do not leave the accident scene until the police have left. 

After leaving the accident scene,

  1. Contact your insurance company as soon as possible.
  2. Get a copy of the accident report from the police.
  3. Get a property damage valuation.
  4. If you were injured in the accident, keep detailed notes of your injuries and track your medical treatment.
  5. Contact a reputable personal injury attorney to protect your rights.
  6. Seek legal advice before you contact your insurer to discuss your car accident claim and compensation for your personal injuries. A qualified attorney will help you recover the maximum amount of damages.
