Car crashes into San Jose home

Los Angeles County coroner’s officials released the identity Thursday of a woman killed in a multi-car crash in Tarzana. The fatal crash occurred Monday about 11:05 p.m. at the intersection of Ventura Boulevard and Vanalden Avenue. Coroner’s officials identified the victim as Cynthia Grace, 64, of Los Angeles. Grace was preparing to enter the onramp of the south 101 Freeway when the driver of a 1999 Ford Taurus heading east on Ventura Boulevard rear-ended her 2003 Saturn Ion, said Det. Bill Bustos of the LAPD’s West Valley station. Grace was killed when her Saturn was crushed into four other vehicles in front of her. A fifth car next to her was sideswiped. In total, seven vehicles were involved in the incident, Bustos said. But the vehicle that received most of the damage was the Saturn, Bustos said. This was a horrible collision. Witnesses told police the man thought to have caused the accident allegedly walked over to the nearby Chevron gas station and purchased a six-pack of beer. The man was drinking beer when the officers found him, according to Bustos. It was unclear if the man was already under the influence of drugs or alcohol before the crash, authorities said. Bustos said the man, who was not identified, was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Advice from Insurance Agents for Winter Weather Car Accidents

The car, a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, is notoriously hard to handle. “We’re looking at speed and speed alone,” a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation told The Associated Press. The official was not authorized to speak publicly about the ongoing investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity. The Nov. 30 crash also killed the driver, Walker’s friend and financial adviser Roger Rodas. Rodas, 38, and Walker, 40, co-owned an auto racing team. Rodas also was a professional driver who competed in 10 Pirelli World Challenge GTS races this year.

Official: No mechanical issues in Walker car crash

Wintry conditions sent cars slipping and sliding down roads, causing accidents and some big headaches for drivers who had to deal with the damage. Insurance agents want to remind people that if they get in an accident, be prepared with their insurance card and exchange information with the other driver right away. They also suggest taking pictures of the other car, their license plate and even the driver. Gary Paulson, Mid-Columbia Insurance agent, says the most important first step is to make sure you are completely off the road to prevent further damage or safety risks. “If you slid, the guy who’s coming up in ten minutes is going to be sliding. Get out of the roadway.Get safe and don’t take your chances of someone side swiping you while you’re standing there exchanging information,” said Paulson. Paulson advised you to drive slowly in the snow because no matter what your speed is, if it’s considered too fast for conditions, not only will you have to deal with an accident, but you’ll probably get a ticket that could impact your insurance costs. Agents recommend reporting your accident to your insurance company within 24 hours.
