7 hurt when cars plunge from parking lot in LA
LOS ANGELES (AP) – Seven people were hurt when the limousine they were in crashed into a parked car, sending both vehicles plunging about 20 feet over the edge of a parking lot in the Hollywood Hills.
Los Angeles fire spokesman Erik Scott says all seven were treated at the scene by paramedics, and five were then transported to hospitals for further treatment. None of the injuries were considered life-threatening.
Police Sgt. O.C. Smith says the limo driver thought he had shifted into reverse when he was actually in drive early Saturday. When he accelerated the limo slammed into the car, knocking it out of the parking lot. Both vehicles ended up down in the courtyard of an adjacent apartment building. The accident remains under investigation.
