A message from the city of Beverly Hills in regards to today's accident involving a cement truck

On Friday, May 2, 2014 at approximately 11 a.m., a cement truck was traveling southbound on Loma Vista Drive when it struck several unoccupied parked cars along Loma Vista Drive. The cement truck came to rest at the intersection of Drury Lane and Loma Vista Drive. The driver of the cement truck was transported to a local hospital in serious condition by the Beverly Hills Fire Department. There were no other injuries. The Beverly Hills Police Department is currently on scene and will be conducting an investigation into the cause of the accident. Loma Vista Drive is expected to re-open by 5 this evening.

Since the most recent construction vehicle accident on March 7, 2014, the Beverly Hills Police Department has increased enforcement in the area including commercial vehicle enforcement and issuance of traffic citations for various violations. The city is also developing stringent regulations to control truck traffic on high-risk streets through the construction permit process. Enhanced Police Department enforcement in the area will also continue. 

The Beverly Hills Police Department and the City Council share the concerns from the community regarding commercial vehicles traveling in the Trousdale area and surrounding streets. This is a critical public safety issue which the Beverly Hills Police Department and other City departments are aggressively working together to avoid future accidents.
