Single Car Crash Kills Driver NR12347kr

Los Angeles:  A 43-year-old woman was killed Tuesday afternoon when her car crashed into a concrete bridge abutment.

On July 24, 2012, around 9:40 a.m., Jennifer Denise Jalsevac, a resident of Burbank, was driving a 1989 Mercedes Benz in the 1700 block of North Spring Street.  Her vehicle suddenly ran off of the roadway and collided into the base of a concrete bridge.

Jalsevac sustained major injuries and was transported to a local hospital by Los Angeles Fire Department personnel.  She did not respond to medical treatment and was pronounced dead shortly after her arrival.

Investigators believe that alcohol may have been a factor in this deadly collision and want to remind the motoring public not to drink and drive.
