    This is so typical of news stations.. Let’s all mourn for the White person, and not the Asian person who was critically injured. Why hasn’t the child’s name been broadcasted?

    Another thing city of Torrance, you waste money making an idiotic bridge between del amo blvd, and you guys don’t make a god damn signal on anza. The AADT is well over 27,500 cars a day. US-395 and Main Street in Adelanto has 22,500 cars a day, and it has light signals for each direction. Get your head together Torrance GOV, and CalTrans

    1. I don’t even know how you found out that he was asian but he’s caucasian. His name wasn’t released for privacy.
