Shlomo Walt posts: “A bunch of motorcycle cops have cordoned off Pico and Oakhurst due to a bicycle/car collision. Beware of traffic woes.”
Moshe posts: “I just saw an accident with a car and a bike. The cyclist was not wearing a helmet! The police said: “he’s in bad shape”. Parents, force your children to wear a helmet. Fellow human beings, if you see someone not wearing a helmet, say something!”
Evan posts: “looks like a very bad accident pico and oakhurts. Kids bike in street and many cops. Oakhurst closed. Very sad.”
S. emails: “I live on Whitworth between Beverly drive and Robertson and every week we have 4 to 5 car accidents on this Stretch. I sometimes worry on Shabbat when kids and families crossing the intersections without the stop signs. Do have a perspective on how to fix this? 90% of accidents are Orthodox Jews going on a Shabbat mission or Jewish holiday mission. It is dangerous to drive on Friday morning in this neighborhood. Any solutions?”

Report: I saw worse last night. A jew with a beard and yarmalkah double parked in front of Munchies, blocking traffic on Pico back for 25 miles.
A block south of 18th Street on the southbound La Cienega Blvd, traffic has been shut down.
As I drove north on La Cienega at 12:45, I saw a police car, an ambulance, and a fire truck outside the Coffee Bean headquarters along with small crowds of people looking distraught.
A hundred yards up the street, just one block south of 18th, an emergency vehicle blocked off the southbound La Cienega, diverting traffic to side streets.
I’ve spent many hours at this Starbucks, sipping iced tea and reading books and looking outside at the traffic and wondering when a car was going to come barreling through. There’s so much traffic outside, so many drivers are reckless, driving and talking and texting on cell phones, it seemed inevitable there would be trouble.
The LAT reports:
Coffee-drinkers in line for lattes at one Los Angeles Starbucks got quite a jolt Wednesday morning when a truck crashed through the front window.
Nobody was hurt in the accident, which happened just after 7 a.m. at the corner of Pico and Robertson boulevards. But customers were shaken.
Starbucks shift manager Daniel Erde was in a back room when he heard an ear-splitting screech and then a burst of shattering glass.
“I came out and there was a truck in the lobby,” Erde said. “People were screaming and on the ground, and the truck was smoking and I could smell gas.”
I saw three police cars around 11 am with a ton of Orthodox Jews and one chubby upset woman in sweats beside a sports car.
