NORTH HOLLYWOOD – A 40-year-old pedestrian waiting to cross a street was killed after being hit by a lightpole that sheared off when a pickup truck smashed into it in a chain-reaction collision, police said today. Arsen Gevorgyan, 40, of North Hollywood was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, which occurred just before noon Sunday at Victory Boulevard and Whitsett Avenue, police said. A 1998 Dodge Ram pickup truck caromed off a 1992 Honda Civic trying to make a left turn from Victory to Whitsett. The crash caused the truck to lose control and shear a light pole at the northwest corner of the intersection where Gevorgyan was waiting to cross the street, police said. Paramedics pronounced Gevorgyan dead at the scene. No one else was injured, but a dog riding in the pickup truck was thrown from the vehicle. The dog suffered leg injuries. Neither alcohol nor drugs was a factor in the crash, said Los Angeles Police Detective Dave Millan, of the Valley Traffic Division, who was investigating the cause of the crash. Millan said there have been other serious crashes at that intersection, which does not have a northbound left-hand turn signal, something he was going to look into. “It seems right now its a tragic accident,” Millan said. “We need a left-hand turning arrow here and these are the reasons why.”last_img read more
