2 Critically Injured After Car Hits Encino Church Planter

The crash occurs about 2 a.m. Sunday.

After a car lost control and hit a brick planter at an Encino church, the driver and passenger were critically injured, police said. 

The crash occurred about 2 a.m. Sunday when a 2003 Toyota Corolla driven by a North Hollywood man crashed into the planter at Our Lady of Grace Parish near Ventura Boulevard and White Oak Avenue, according to the Los Angeles Daily News. 

“It’s quite a bit back; they must have been going at a bit of speed,” Pastor Jay Cunnane told the Daily News. “It would be a bad collision for the car. I could see that. It takes some force to loosen up all the bricks but (the damage) is not hugely extensive.”

Speed is a major factor in so many auto accidents every year. No matter what the posted speed limit (which would probably be 35 mph or less in this residential area), California Vehicle Code 22350 requires all persons to travel only as fast is is safe given all roadway conditions including weather, traffic, and the existence of pedestrians or other vehicles. Slow down! You could save a life or prevent serious injury!
