    Rumor has it he was driving an Aston-Martin and his hair was impeccable.

    My husband and I were sitting in our car at the stoplight on the corner of Palms and Sawtelle when they came by at close to 60 mph. The car, a silver Land Rover, blew through the stop light, almost hitting a black SUV crossing the intersection. Some 6-8 police cars followed, and soon after two helicoptors flew overhead.

    Driving through such a residential area at that speed, the likelihood of someone innocent being injured seems really high. Glad no one (that I saw) was injured.
