SUN VALLEY (CBSLA.com) — A crash between two three-wheeled motorcycles turned deadly Thursday afternoon in Sun Valley.
CBS2’a Andrea Fujii reported from the scene where she said many distraught family members gathered to mourn.
The crash occurred around 3:45 p.m. on Saticoy, about a block from Julie Korenstein Elementary School in Sun Valley.
Officials said one of the two bikes slammed into a parked car, fire hydrant and a light pole. The water to the fire hydrant has been shut off.
Fujii reported that the other driver is okay.
The bikes look like reverse tricycles.
Fujii spoke to two witnesses. One said they were speeding, possibly racing. But the other witness said they weren’t going fast.
“I noticed a bang and then a crash,” said John Kosti, “and the cars flipped over and his partner was trying to help pull him out. And he was yelling and screaming ‘help, help, help.’
The investigation into the cause of the crash is on-going.
