CHP Reports 1 Fatality in LA County So Far This Holiday
The California Highway Patrol reports one fatality "on Los Angeles County roads during the first 12 hours of the Thanksgiving holiday period, the same as last year, and drunken driving arrests fell slightly, from 65 to 54," according to the Daily Breeze. The fatality was a solo driving incident in City Terrace which involved a 31-year-old motorcyclist who struck a median on Eastern Avenue. Over the 4-day holiday the CHP will be cracking down on dangerous drivers during this Maximum Enforcement Period (MEP).
