A man who police believe had been driving recklessly died on March 23 after crashing his car into a structure on the west end of the Hyperion Treatment Plant in Playa del Rey.
The crash at the sewage plant occurred just after 11:30 p.m. at 7650 Imperial Highway.
“It appears that the driver was driving at a high rate of speed before the crash,” LAPD Sgt. Ben Drucker said, but “the vehicle never got close to any inhabited buildings.”
Identification of the driver has not yet been released and no one else was injured.
