Two people were injured in a traffic accident at the intersection of Rossmore Avenue and Third Street around 9 a.m. Wednesday morning. According to LAPD West Traffic Bureau, a vehicle made a left turn in front of the motorcycle, causing the accident.
Traffic was diverted away from the intersection of Rossmore and Third Street and paramedics attended to the driver and passenger of the motorcycle. All three individuals were adults, not students at nearby Marlborough School. The motorcycle passenger and driver were taken to a local hospital, according to Officer Engle, who interviewed both victims. Fortunately, their injuries were not severe. The driver of the vehicle was not injured.
In February, LADOT implemented new lane striping on Rossmore Avenue, designed to reduce speed and increase safety on the street for residents and drivers. Perhaps it’s time to look into speed reduction and safety improvements for Third Street.
