Man Killed, 2 Hurt In SUV Crash Into Silver Lake Oyster Bar

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — One person is dead and two people are in serious condition after a car crashed into a restaurant in Silver Lake Wednesday.

The crash took out a tree and sent a Ford Explorer into the patio area of L&E Oyster Bar at about 11 a.m. in the 1300 block of Silver Lake Boulevard. The SUV apparently hit a man on a motorized scooter.

“The Explorer pushed the moped off the side of the road into some fixtures, a lamp standard, and ended up in front of this restaurant,” an LAPD officer at the scene said.

The rider of the scooter, a man in his 50s, was declared dead at the scene. Two others who were in the Explorer, a 72-year-old woman and a 52-year-old man, were taken to a hospital in at least serious condition, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Witnesses said Explorer was speeding and driving erratically.

“People use this street as a highway bc they are in a rush to get somewhere,” one witness said.

There was no fire as a result of the car crashing into the building, but inspectors have been called out to check the structural integrity of the building.
