Ah, the hazards of gentrification: a limo got stuck trying to make it over the steep hill on Baxter Street in Echo Park.It's bad enough trying to get up that hill if your car's engine isn't up to snuff. But if you have a really long vehicle that hangs low to the ground, like a limo, you have to really watch out. Echo Park Now has an amazing picture of the limo from yesterday. (We're not sure if the limo ever made it out of the rain.)

This isn't the first vehicle that got stuck trying to make it to the top. The Eastsider has a picture of a bus that got stuck on that same hill back in 2009.
