A 60-year-old woman is recovering after being hit by an SUV carrying LA Mayor Eric Garcetti. The city owned SUV was being driven by an LAPD officer when it struck the pedestrian.
A Los Angeles Times security camera captured the accident at the corner of Spring and 2nd at around 12:20pm on Tuesday. It shows the dark colored vehicle heading eastbound on 2nd St and the woman crossing against the light.
Garcetti was interviewed by LAPD officers but he says he was on the phone at the time and did not see what happened. In a statement, he said that he was very concerned about her and wished her a speedy recovery.
