While most of you were leaving the bars, or drifting into a deep sleep, some poor soul crashed his 18-wheeler down from the freeway fatally ejecting 1 person from the cab of the truck, and smashing at least two cars into smithereens.
Details at this early hour are fuzzy other than this took place around 2 A.M. behind the Los Angeles Convention Center, and the one fatality.
