Car Wraps Around Pole During Drizzle

"People have to learn to drive in the rain," an LAPD officer says.

A driver failed to to negotiate a downhill curve during light rain Thursday afternoon and wrapped her car around a Corbin Avenue lamppost just soulth of Hiawatha Street in Chatsworth.

"This is California," said an LAPD officer at the scene. "People have to learn to drive in the rain."

An ambulance from Fire Station 96 rushed the driver to Holy Cross Hospital in Mission Hills, the officer said. There were no passengers in the car. "A passenger would have been killed," he said.

The accident took place on the same downhill curve just yards from where a car smashed into a wall in October during what police believed to be a street race. Two women were hospitalized in that wreck.

Good thing there was no passenger on that car because if it does, I don't know what will happen to them. It is really very risky to drive downhill most specially if the weather is not good. -http://www.speedprothewoodlands.com/
