Four Month-Old Child Dies in a Traffic Collision

 

Los Angeles: On Wednesday, April 2, 2003, at approximately 2:05 p.m., a fatal traffic collision occurred on Vermont Avenue and 76th Street in the 77th Street Area.

The collision occurred when a 1991 GMC, Suburban, travelling northbound on Vermont Avenue, collided into the rear of a 1990 Nissan Sentra, which was stopped at the intersection at 76th Street for a red light.

The Suburban was being driven by Harold Joseph Williams, a 36 year-old resident of Los Angeles. The occupants inside the Nissan, an 18 year-old female, a 15 year-old female, an 18 month-old girl and a 4 month-old boy all sustained major injuries.

Los Angeles Fire Department Paramedics responded to the scene and transported the occupants of the Nissan to a local hospital, where they were treated. Unfortunately, the 4 month-old boy had sustained major head trauma and died as a result of his injuries. The boy’s name is being withheld pending the notification of his family.

During the preliminary investigation, Williams was found to be driving under the influence of an alcoholic beverage and was arrested for Felony Vehicular Manslaughter.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact South Traffic at 213-485-7336. On weekends and during off-hours, please call the 24-hour toll free number at the Detective Information Desk, 1-877-LAWFULL, 1-877-529-3855.
