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.

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.

Dude I was around back then…actually knew the wife of the guy in the Hawaiian shirt.
TANKS for the memories.
West Hollywood. Win.
Pity it wasn’t a Prius, for the two-fer.
But the actual story is “Breakaway utility pole achor bolts fail, drunk driver killed anyways. City to be sued by outraged next of kin.”
And if you’re going to go motoring about in an M-60 series tank, remember to combat-lock the hatch, and don’t get high-centered on concrete K-rail.
