5 Injured in Pedestrian Collision on Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood

Hollywood, California – Five people suffered major-to-critical injuries following a Hollywood DUI crash on Hollywood Boulevard near the El Capitan Theatre Friday afternoon, police said.

According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, an SUV driver reportedly veered off the road and crashed into a group of pedestrians on the sidewalk before slamming into the front of the Highland Market.

Police said the driver was driving the wrong way when the crash occurred.

The incident transpired at around 3:05 p.m. on March 19.

Four victims were rushed to a hospital with serious-to-critical injuries.

Among the victims were two Fox11 crew members who were in the neighborhood to cover the reopening of the El Captain at 6838 Hollywood Boulevard.

The fifth victim declined transport to the hospital, LAFD said.

The involved driver was not injured and was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Police closed Hollywood Boulevard at Highway Avenue to allow investigation.

We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”
