Los Angeles TV crew injured in SUV crash, driver arrested


LOS ANGELES — A FOX 11 reporter and photographer were among five people seriously injured Friday when an SUV crashed into a building in Hollywood, officials said.

The male driver has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

The TV station’s crew members were working on a story about the famous El Capitan Theatre and Los Angeles County’s partial reopening this week, which allows for movie theaters to open at limited capacity, according to FOX 11.

The SUV crashed into a glass storefront on West Hollywood Boulevard around 4 p.m., striking several pedestrians, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The reporter and photographer were among the five people taken to the hospital, the station said. At least four of them were considered to be in serious to critical condition, the LAFD said.

Another pedestrian declined to be taken to the hospital, the LAFD said. The circumstances surrounding the crash were not immediately known.
