Two Injured In East L.A. Crash

Two people suffered major injuries Sunday when their 1995 Toyota Camry crashed into a parked tractor-trailer next to a popular all-night taco stand in East Los Angeles, the California Highway Patrol said.

A 20-year-old motorist and her passenger, a 43-year-old man, suffered major injuries during the crash and were transported Los Angeles County/USC Medical Center, according to the CHP.

The crash was reported at 2:20 a.m. on Ford Boulevard just south of Third Street, said CHP Officer Alex Rubio. The crash was next to King Taco, an all-night taco stand that typically draws a big crowd on weekend nights.

The 20-year-old driver was going south on Ford Boulevard, approaching Third Street, when for an unknown reason she turned to the right and crashed into a large parked truck, according to the CHP news statement. Alcohol was not believed to be a factor in the crash.
