LOS ANGELES (October 28, 2012)--A town car crashed into a parked car in Los Angeles and both vehicles plunged 20 feet off an elevated parking lot and onto an apartment courtyard, injuring all seven people inside.
Los Angeles fire spokesman Erik Scott says five people were hospitalized early Saturday, but none of the injuries was considered life threatening.
Police Sgt. O.C. Smith said the town car driver thought he had shifted into reverse when he accelerated.
Smith said the limo slammed into the car, knocking it off the elevated parking lot in the Hollywood Hills.
Both vehicles fell onto the courtyard of an adjacent apartment building.
The building was not damaged.
The accident remains under investigation.
