April – On Friday evening, a Los Angeles man driving under the influence crashed into a palm tree, injuring himself and killing his female passenger.

The accident occurred at the intersection of Atlantic Avenue and Wardlow Road at 11:44 p.m. April 1st according to the Long Beach police department. When responding officers arrived at the scene, they found a 1991 Toyota Camry had crashed into a palm tree. Driver and passenger, a man and a women, had sustained serious injuries in the accident and were transported to a nearby hospital by the Long Beach Fire Department.
