Woman wrecks parked vehicles

first_imgThe blue Nissan Quest side-swiped two vehicles before coming to a stop when it plowed into a black Honda Civic, Pope Givens said. Samson Arzamendi, 19, of Pasadena, a culinary student, said he saw the Quest plow into the last in a row of four parked cars – crushing them like an accordion. “She was driving around 90 or 100 miles an hour,” he said. “I don’t know, but it was really fast. “We went to help her and she got out and started hugging my friend and kissing him on the neck. She was asking him if he loved her.” Meantime, firefighters worked to clear fuel spilled into the street by the damaged vehicles. PASADENA – A suspected drunken driver collided with a number of parked cars on a one-way street before eventually coming to a stop late Tuesday, police said. No one was injured when Adriana Vellascolucero, 32, of Inglewood side-swiped several cars parked along Green Street at Oakland Avenue – just outside the California School of Culinary Arts – about 8:30 p.m., said Pasadena police Sgt. Kathryn Jorge. Vellascolucero was issued a misdemeanor DUI citation after being transported to Huntington Hospital shortly after the accident, which involved seven vehicles, said police spokeswoman Janet Pope Givens. “She wasn’t injured,” Pope Givens said. “She was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure.” Cathy Kim, 22, another culinary student, waited at the school’s exit as she surveyed her smashed Civic. “My mom’s coming to give me a ride home,” she said. “I don’t know what I’ll do. For now, I am just going home.” Student Hixi Zavala, 18, waited to retrieve belongings from his Nissan Altima, another vehicle damaged. “This has been a bad month for me with cars,” he said. “One of my close friends just recently passed away from an accident.” [email protected] (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4461 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
