Car Crash | Brentwood

An SUV crashed into a home at the corner of Sunset Boulevard and South Bundy Drive on Friday, March 10 at around 10 a.m.

The driver suffered an epileptic episode while driving east on Sunset Boulevard toward the 405, according to first responders. After veering off the road and narrowly missing the traffic lights, the driver hopped the curb onto the sidewalk, skidded over the lawn and slammed into the side of the home.

EMTs found the individual unconscious in the car, filled with heavy smoke, and broke the rear window of the vehicle to extract him.

Rain Before Shine | Pacific Palisades

Palisadians are in for some light rains before the summer sun peeks out from the clouds.

“A jet stream is starting to re-intensify across the northeast pacific, pretty much like the winter time, so it’s driving the storm track further south again and the first one that will be coming in looks like it will be in the early morning hours of Thursday through Thursday morning,” Meteorologist Jay Rosenthal told the Palisadian-Post. “If the models hold up, we’ll get some rain out of it.”

Friday and Saturday will be a teaser for the months to come, followed by some light rain on Sunday.

According to Rosenthal, we’ll be feeling the heat by May 24.

“Things will warm up pretty well by the weekend [May 24] approaching summer-type weather. But there will be two or three periods of brief light rain before we get to the nicer weather.”
