    A Three-Car Collision Shuts Down Santa Monica Blvd and San Vicente Blvd

    There was another car collision at the intersection of Santa Monica Blvd and San Vicente Blvd, in the heart of West Hollywood’s LGBT Rainbow District Wednesday evening, this time involving three vehicles. The crash shut down the Santa Monica Boulevard westbound lane and the San Vicente southbound lane. The accident happened a little after 7 p.m.

    Los Angeles Fire Department first responders and West Hollywood Sheriff deputies were on the scene. Two individuals were transported to a nearby hospital. The severity of their injuries is not yet known.

    According to a witness, a dark gray Tesla was making a left turn at Santa Monica Boulevard, when a white SUV Ford Explorer crashed into it and then slammed into a white Chevy Cruze LT that was making a left turn northbound. Both the SUV and the Chevy crashed into the Tesla. The SUV spun at the intersection and ended on the northeast corner of Santa Monica Blvd.

    “We were waiting to make a left turn and this the guy in the white truck, who was admittedly drunk I just found out, hit us from his side and slammed into the white car in front of us,” said Yu Tsai, who was a passenger in the Tesla. “Both drivers were taken by the paramedics. I don’t know how badly they were hurt but thank God we are fine.”

    There were three people inside the Tesla–one is a small child who was holding a French bulldog.

    This is the second car accident at Santa Monica Blvd and San Vicente in the past two days. A West Hollywood Sheriff’s SUV was involved in car collision which shut down the same intersection on Tuesday Morning. The West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station released an advisory message warning community members of traffic alerts in the area and advised commuters to take an alternate route during the road closure while LASD conducted an investigation.

    A cleanup crew was on the scene Wednesday night and Santa Monica Blvd was open both ways by 8:30pm.

    You would have to be drunk to get into an accident at this slow moving intersection.

    I actually saw this happen walking to PavIlions last night. It was loud & quick yet seemed like a slow motion accident in a movie. I dialed the sheriff’s right away but so many people were standing around taking video & pictures getting in the way of traffic trying to get around.
