Another Driver Plunges into Marina del Rey Harbor
Firefighters and Los Angeles County lifeguards responded to the 5500 block of Pacific Avenue near Via Marina at 12:13 a.m. and extracted the driver from the vehicle.
There were no reported injuries, however, said L.A. Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott.
The LAPD’s West Traffic Bureau is investigating the crash.
On Nov. 17, a car speeding southbound on Pacific near Via Marina crashed through a guardrail and ended up in the water. According to witnesses, the driver of that car fled the scene after emerging from the harbor.
Another crash in December about a tenth of a mile away left three teens dead and another in critical condition after their speeding car flipped and hit a tree while rounding the curve on Via Marina near Mariners Village. The California Highway Patrol, which investigated the crash, said no one in the car was wearing seat belts at the time of the collision.
