L.A. car crash mars Mother's Day
by UPI

LOS ANGELES - A woman selling Mother's Day gifts was among the victims when a car crashed into a Los Angeles bus stop Sunday, killing two people and injuring three.

KABC-TV reported the fatalities were Marilyn Herod, 57, of Riverside, Calif., and Servin Herrera-Ambrocio, 26, Los Angeles. Another woman suffered fractured ribs and had her foot amputated, police said. Another woman and a man suffered minor injuries.

Police said the driver was booked on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence pending further investigation.

There were conflicting reports about the accident. Earlier reports indicated the driver had worked all night and was heading home when he apparently fell asleep at the wheel, the station reported. But police said excessive speed also may have been involved and a witness said the driver appeared to be racing another car.

Earline Harris said she was on the phone with Herod when the accident happened.

A friend of Herod, Dawn Ellis, was on her way to help at the flower stand when the crash occurred.

"I hear, boom!" she told the TV station. "And I look up and the car is airborne and I just see it hit everybody."
