   Memorial Day Weekend began with a huge crash at the main corner in Highland Park Friday night. Two vehicles were involved at just after 9:00 p.m. It was described by a cashier at Penny's Restaurant across the street as a classic "t-bone" incident. One vehicle was attempting to make a left turn and the other was trying to enter the intersection just as the light changed. There was no immediate sign that alcohol or drugs played a role.

   Firefighters from LAFD fire stations, including 12 and 55 in Highland Park, responded with heavy equipment and the 'Jaws of Life' used to extract a male occupant from one vehicle, a light gray late-1990s model Lincoln Town Car with Dayton spoke rims. The other car involved was a dark gray early 2000s Nissan Altima. It had at least one female inside. There were numerous occupants in each vehicle. Six persons in total were transported to hospitals.

   The scene of the collision was still blocked off at 10:30 p.m. Friday, with both vehicles still sitting in the intersection.
