    I wonder how many resources the LAFD dispatched. Let’s see….my guess? 3 trucks, 5 engines, 4 ALS ambulances, 7 BLS ambulances, 1 division chief, 4 battalion chiefs, and 3 EMS captains. That sounds about right

    What you mean that you don’t know the cause of the accident?
    Everyone knows the cause of this accident was speeding..
    These $@#$$%^ tow truck drivers drive CRAZY all the times, even when they are loaded with a 3 or 10-tons trucks.
    The drive crazy, they don’t respect the traffic signal, they NEVER make a complete STOP, on the freeway, the drive over 75 MPH, even the law requires them to drive 55MPH when they are towing.
    Great! I hope this #$%^& driver learns the lesson after this accident.

    The tow truck driver probably had some health problem that caused him to crash into Yoshinoya. I live around Melrose area and I drive through Beverly Blvd. & Normandie often and this intersection is a wide spaced area. So I don’t see how anything other than a health problem of the driver caused this accident. Probably health problem or something.
