Los Angeles:  An intoxicated driver caused two collisions just minutes apart in the early morning hours of Tuesday.   The second collision proved fatal for one of the vehicles passengers.

It was a violent collision that caused serious injury to both drivers of the vehicles, as well as a passenger in the Jeep.  All three were transported to a local hospital for treatment of their injuries.

The driver of the Toyota is expected to be booked for murder once his medical condition improves.
