A car slammed the brakes to avoid a jaywalking pedestrian causing a three-vehicle accident on Victory Boulevard at 9:30 a.m.
According to Deputy Isaac Jorge, a young person crossed the street at a non-intersection, causing a vehicle to suddenly hit the brakes to avoid him. The car behind rear ended it, and the vehicle behind it, rear ended that car, creating an “accordion effect.”
The driver of the third vehicle broke his nose. Ambulance and paramedics were called to the scene because a toddler was also in the car.
The child was checked on by LAFD, and Jorge said that no one will be transported to the hospital.
