Pacoima, Los Angeles, CA – Woman Seriously Injured After Dump Truck Crashes into Apartment Building

Pacoima, Los Angeles, CA (August 21, 2019) – Several people suffered injuries, at least one serious, after a dump truck collided with a vehicle before crashing into an apartment building in the Pacoima section of Los Angeles. The incident happened at the intersection of West Branford Street and Laurel Canyon Boulevard.

The accident began when a dump truck collided with a silver Mazda at the intersection. The impact of the collision sent the dump truck off the roadway and crashing into a nearby apartment building. One resident, identified as Yajaira Ramos, stated that the collision felt like an earthquake.

Emergency responders arrived at the scene, where the operators of the vehicles involved and at least two pedestrians were injured. The conditions of most of the victims appear to be non-life threatening but an older female who was inside the apartment sustained major injuries. She is listed in serious condition at the hospital.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time.
