Four adults and two children were taken to hospitals Monday for treatment of injuries they suffered, some severe, when one car struck two others in Cypress Park, authorities said.
The crash was reported just after midnight at Cypress Avenue and Macon Street, Sgt. Kris Werner of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Central Traffic Division said.
The driver of the first vehicle struck one parked car and the wheel came loose hitting a woman who was standing in front of the car, injuring her foot, Werner said.
A man was getting his children into another parked car when the first vehicle struck that car and he suffered a leg injury, the sergeant said.
A man who was a pedestrian was standing on the sidewalk and also injured in the crash, Werner said.
The driver of the first vehicle, the pedestrian and the man with the injured leg were all taken by paramedics to County USC Medical Center, he said. The children were taken also as a precaution. The woman struck by the tire was taken by relatives to a hospital. All of the adult injuries were considered severe, he said.
The driver of the first vehicle, a woman, was under investigation for DUI, Werner said.
