Car crashed into front of house at 7414 Fountain Ave.

A vehicle involved in a two-car collision struck a house in West Hollywood last night, injuring one of the drivers and damaging the front wall and a window of the home, a sheriff’s sergeant said.

The crash was reported about 8:50 p.m. at or near the intersection of Fountain Avenue and Gardner Street, Sgt. Joseph Morien of the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station said. A car involved in the crash struck the front of a home at 7414 Fountain Avenue, Morien said.

The vehicle damaged the home’s front wall and a window, but did not go completely into the house, the sergeant said.

One of the drivers complained of neck and back pain and was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Morien said. No one was cited or arrested, he said.

Take Fountain Ave?! More like taking the Fountain FWY!

Accidents happen – but to lose control of your vehicle or be forced off of the road and onto a sidewalk the. Into a house… That’s a need for speed – control.

I live on Fountain in that area and there is at least one accident per week. Agree that people treat it like a freeway with high speeds. Never see any cops citing for speeding.

Let’s not be too hasty in blaming the driver. That house should have been wearing brighter clothes. And a helmet, too. Then the driver could have more easily seen and avoided the house, and the house would have been more protected.

Tine and time again I have seen drivers doing 50mph or more on Fountain. At last count there have been at least 3 accidents on Fountain that I know of in the past year.
