From the city of Beverly Hills:

One person was killed when a cement truck collided with another vehicle at 1:53 p.m. today on Loma Vista Road. The driver of the vehicle, an off-duty Los
Angeles police detective, died at the scene and the truck driver was transported to a local hospital in critical condition. Loma Vista has been shut down between Doheny Road and Drury Lane until approximately midnight.
“We are devastated by the accident and mourn with the family of the detective who died,” said Beverly Hills Mayor Lili Bosse. 

The city of Beverly Hills has suspended all heavy haul deliveries to and pick up from construction sites in the Trousdale area for 30 days or until measures are in place to ensure that the deliveries can be made safely.

Construction project managers will be informed of this restrictions and city building inspectors will be in the area over the weekend. Signage will be installed at the entries to the Trousdale area indicating that heavy delivery to the area is prohibited.

Developing and implementing these measures is an immediate priority so that delay to the active construction sites is minimized. 

This is the third accident on Loma Vista involving a heavy haul truck in the past two months. 

On March 7, 2014 a Los Angeles Police officer was killed and his partner injured when a runaway truck collided with a patrol car. On Friday, May 2, 2014, a cement truck was traveling southbound Loma Vista Drive when it struck several parked cars along Loma Vista Drive. The truck driver sustained non-life threatening injuries. 

The city of Beverly Hills is aware of the concerns from the community regarding commercial vehicles traveling along Loma Vista Drive 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 mitigate future accidents. The police department has significantly stepped up traffic enforcement and commercial vehicle enforcement efforts in the Trousdale area since the beginning of the year. In addition, two speed radar trailers on Loma Vista have been deployed.
