“At first, I heard a car speeding around. He was doing doughnuts or something like that,” said Daron Sizer, a witness. “Like ten minutes later, and that’s when you hear all the sirens coming out of nowhere.”
“The collision was so violent they weren’t able to go to their police radios. They had to phone the station via their cellphones,” LAPD Lt. John Pasquariello told KNX 1070’s Ed Mertz.
