The description of the accident is dry as dust. “Vehicle struck a pole.” Happens all the time, no?
A person was killed after a vehicle struck a utility pole in West Hollywood early Thursday morning, sheriff’s deputies said.
The crash was reported near Sunset Boulevard and Larrabee Street around 4:20 a.m. No other injuries were reported.
Here’s the picture.
This is not your everyday “vehicle struck a pole,” is it? There’s a story there that somehow didn’t make it into the news story; Lord knows what it was.
Of course, speculation can easily connect 4:20 AM, Judgment Juice® and “speed excessive for state of inebriation.” But it would only be speculation.
