BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - A cement truck crash has killed an off-duty Los Angeles police officer on the same steep road in Beverly Hills where another truck accident killed a policeman in March.
Authorities say the cement truck collided with a pickup truck shortly before 2 p.m. Friday in the 1000-block of Loma Vista Drive. The pickup driver was killed and the cement truck driver seriously injured.
Officer Sara Faden confirms that the victim was an off-duty officer.
The crash comes a week after another cement truck slammed into several parked cars on the same winding street, injuring that driver.
And it's the same block where a truck hauling a trash container struck an LAPD patrol car on March 7, killing Officer Nicholas Lee and injuring another officer.
