Witness spotted the driver of the second car limping away. Police searched the area and arrested three men, one of whom admitted to being the driver. However, investigators are still unclear on the details of the wreck.
“One person came out, surrendering, identifying himself as the driver,” LAPD Capt. Brian Wendling said. “Two additional people were located, and we’re determining if they were in the car as well or if, in fact, one of them was the driver. We have to determine that at this point.”MORE NEWS: Thousands Of LAUSD Students Still Unvaccinated As Deadline Nears
