On my way back from a health scare, I come upon a terrible scene. On lock down from about 72nd to Van Ness along the ‘hood artery known as Crenshaw, on the corner of Florence, a six car, six fatality pile up lays out part of what would be a devastating day in South Central.
What’s left of 3 of the cars.
Trucks and police line…
From about 73rd and Crenshaw…
To Van Ness…
Apparently a car ran a light here on the corner of Florence and Crenshaw.
Intense heat melted light/walk signal.
Witnesses being questioned by police and firemen.
Cars were diverted as far back as 74th.
Crowd gathers at 73rd and Crenshaw.
Neighbors talk it over.
A lone flare cuts off an alley route.
The sun sets behind the police line a block back on Florence.
The end of a horrible day.
