At around 5:30am New Years morning a Black SUV traveling southbound on 700 N block of Vista entered Melrose Ave and collided with an Uber filled with possibly 4 passengers / 5 occupants sending it up on the sidewalk Amsterdam hitting the side of  a storefront on the southwest corner. Apparently the SUV had one occupant and it crashed into the stores entrance at the corner itself. Witnesses tell us that one person was resuscitated at the scene and all victims were transported to Cedars or other hospitals — some in serious to very serious condition. Photos posted below. Melrose was closed from 5:30am to Noon time between Martel and Gardner St. This intersection has scene it’s share of accidents of late.

UPDATE 1/6/2017::  A “GoFundMe” account has been set up to help the victims that were onboard the Uber that was hit by the suspected drunk driver.. Here’s an update on their condition from that page..”Those who have ever met Eugene Efuni will say, “He is a Prince among men”… I couldn’t agree more! So full of life… so full of wonder… so full of knowledge and warmth… He is loved and adored by all! Today, he is fighting for his life after a horrific New Year’s morning accident in Los Angeles with three of his girlfriends that were visiting from the Ukraine; Liza, Natasha and Inga. All four are lucky to be alive, but are all in various conditions at the time. Eugene is stil unconscious, having undergone multiple surgeries, but is seemingly putting up a big fight! Liza has broken everything from head to toe, but she is conscious as she prepares to go on the operating table again and again in the coming days. Natasha has regained consciousness today and is lucid, but her fight is just begining. Inga also awoke today and is doing better, but as with them all – it’s a very long road ahead.

This Campaign is aimed at easing some immedaite expenses for Eugene, his distraught parents and family, as well as the  3 girls and their families, some of whom are currently on the way to Los Angeles from Ukraine.  We are talking every day necessities that need to be taken care of while they remain in this condition.

I thank all of our friends in advance for contributing. Please share this with others and incourage them to donate as well. This story had a global inpact on so many people”…To view and contribute to the GoFundMe page click here > https://www.gofundme.com/eugenes-emergency-fund
