Traffic Collision Claims Life at Palisades Bowl

An accident at Palisades Bowl claimed the life of a young woman.


On July 22, around 7:55 p.m. a collision involving a vehicle and a pedestrian occurred at Pacific Place east of Terrace Drive at Palisades Bowl (off Pacific Coast Highway).

A student, Emily, 20s, was hit and was transported to UCLA Westwood Hospital in critical condition and placed on life support. She passed away on August 2.

According to the West Los Angeles Police Department August 1 statement, “A vehicle backing westbound on Pacific Pl collided with a pedestrian walking southbound Pacific Place. The vehicle’s impact with the pedestrian caused secondary impact with the roadway causing severe injuries to that party.

“The driver of the vehicle, a woman in her 50s, remained at-scene and cooperated with the investigation. There was no evidence or indication of criminal or gross negligence on the part of either involved party,” according to the press release.

At least one resident felt a thorough investigation was not done that involved the driver’s culpability and told Circling the News, “She was driving backwards at a speed in excess of the park’s posted limit.”

Anyone with additional information regarding this incident is asked to contact West Traffic Division Detectives, at (213) 473-0234 or (213) 473-0222.

    This is such a tragedy and completely avoidable. So sad.

    Also, since there is no way to respond to the complaint about the Proposed Dog Park comment regarding noise on the ridge, above the Temescal cite, I am responding here. As mentioned in last weeks rebuttal, we did a sound check at the location and on the ridge, with barking dogs, and there was a positive result. The traffic in that corridor was louder than the dogs. Also, the houses are beyond the Rec & Park’s 150 foot requirement for a new public park. I welcome CTN to contact our committee for all sides of the story.
