Hawthorne Police temporarily closed the road to traffic with ambulances on hand and a tow truck arriving.  It was not immediately known the nature or extent of possible injuries sustained.

"It was the loudest accident I’ve heard here in a while," area resident Alexandra Harbord told TAPinto Hawthorne.  The street has a 25 miles-per-hour speed limit.

While the white vehicle was towed away, the silver car presented more of a challenge, being stuck on the grass.  A flatbed truck was able to position itself across the road in such a way to align with the car and bring it on board.  "This tow driver deserves a raise," Harbord said in light of the skill shown.
