Samiya Carr ID’d as Suspect in Los Angeles DUI Crash on 110 Freeway

LOS ANGELES, CA (May 13, 2023) – Authorities detained Samiya Carr after a DUI crash on the 110 Freeway in South Los Angeles.

The California Highway Patrol determined that the suspect was under the influence of alcohol when the wreck took place on Friday.

The incident began when Samiya Carr was driving a 2022 Honda sedan on the northbound 110 Freeway near the Century Boulevard exit in Los Angeles.

CHP said the Los Angeles resident hit an L.A. Sanitation garbage truck. The dump truck slammed into the cement freeway wall and then burst into flames.

2 Injured in Wreck

For an unknown reason, a Chevrolet Malibu became involved in the process. The cement blocks, garbage bags and debris fell onto the street below and caused damage to unoccupied parked vehicles in the area.

The CBS Los Angeles and ABC 7 News wrote that the collision occurred on May 12 at around 2:20 a.m. The driver of the dump truck sustained a significantly torn ear as a result of the incident.

Paramedics rushed the patient and a passenger of the Honda to the hospital for treatment. Meanwhile, CHP soon arrested Samiya Carr for DUI following the crash.

The names of the wounded parties involved in the wreck and their condition at this time were not released. The Los Angeles DUI crash is still under investigation.
