In a big "oops, that was the gas pedal" moment, a Silver Lake Teen accidently ran over his dad at their home this morning. The 4:45 a.m. incident took place at the 700 block of North Occidental Avenue, which is near Sunset and Silver Lake Boulevards. The father was freed from under the vehicle and taken to the hospital in stable condition. The LAPD said there was no evidence of drinking.

In North University Park, a man was apparently killed in a hit-and-run accident on Hoover near the 10 freeway after 5:00 a.m.

Last night, a dangerous police chase ensued in South LA when police saw a man driving erratically. During the chase, it was said that the man was throwing "clumps" of marijuana out the window and drove through an active accident scene on the 110 freeway, coming near firefighters and police.
