Stephen Seyarto, 20, of Duarte, was injured in a car crash in Azusa after he struck a vehicle on the freeway. According to a news account in The San Gabriel Valley Tribune, the injury collision occurred eastbound on the 210 Freeway near Vernon Avenue, the morning of September 11, 2012. California Highway Patrol officials say Seyarto was driving a 2005 Honda Shadow motorcycle when for unknown reasons, he collided with a Ford truck driven by Sergio Torres-Ramirez, 37, of Pacoima.

Seyarto was ejected from the motorcycle and was thrown onto the freeway lanes. Ramirez and other motorists stopped their vehicles after the collision and helped Seyarto get to the right shoulder emergency lane. Seyarto was transported to a local hospital for treatment of his injuries. The investigation is ongoing.

My heart goes out to Stephen Seyarto who has been injured in this collision. I wish him the very best for a speedy and complete recovery. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. I also commend the motorist and the passers by who stopped immediately and quite possibly saved Seyarto’s life by getting him to a safe location.

By Brian Chase on September 11, 2012 - No comments

Jason Shmelnik, 21, Pavel “Pasha” Volodkovich and Ekaterina Botvinieva, 23, were killed in a fiery car accident in Los Angeles. According to a CBS news report, the fatal crash occurred early morning on September 9, 2012 on Ventura Boulevard near Tujunga Avenue in Studio City. Officials say the three friends were traveling in a BMW that went out of control and struck several trees before crashing into Reno’s Pizzeria in the 11400 block of Ventura Boulevard. The impact sheared a gas line causing the car and the building to erupt in flames. The occupants of the vehicle were unable to get out in time and died at the scene. Police suspect that speed and alcohol were factors in this crash. The investigation is ongoing.

I offer my deepest condolences to the family members and friends of Shmelnik, Volodkovich and Botvinieva. The victims’ friends say the three were celebrating Shmelnik’s 21st birthday and were driving from a restaurant in the San Fernando Valley. Tragic! Please keep these grieving families in your thoughts and prayers.

By Brian Chase on September 10, 2012 - No comments

Two sisters, ages 12 and 6, were critically injured in a Los Angeles car crash after a suspected drunk driver struck them while they were walking in a marked crosswalk. According to a City News Service report, the major injury collision occurred the night of September 7, 2012 at the intersection of North San Fernando Road and Hallett Avenue near Glassell Park. Police say the two girls and their grandmother were crossing the roadway when a car that was westbound on San Fernando hit the pedestrians. The male driver was traveling at 50 mph in a 35-mph zone. He was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. While the grandmother was not hurt, the two children were transported to an area hospital with life threatening injuries.

My thoughts and prayers are with these two severely injured children and their family members for what they are going through at this time. The younger child apparently underwent brain surgery after suffering severe head trauma. I wish these injured victims the very best for a complete recovery.

Two men were hospitalized with injuries sustained in a Riverside County car accident, the afternoon of September 5, 2012. According to The Banning-Beaumont Patch, the injury crash occurred near Interstate 10 and State Route 62 in Whitewater and involved three vehicles. California Highway Patrol officials say a Dodge van driven by 62-year-old David Erskine struck a big rig driven by 36-year-old Charles Ashworth of Lodi on the westbound 10 Freeway near the 62.

Officials said the van was traveling a higher rate of speed on the connector road. Erskine failed to see a big rig as he attempted to change lanes to the left. The van struck the rear portion of the trailer and then spun to the left and hit a Chevy pickup driven by 52- year-old Eugene Alvarado. Erskine suffered major injuries and Alvarado sustained moderate injuries. Ashworth was uninjured.

My heart goes out to the injured victims of this crash. I wish them the very best for a speedy and complete recovery. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
