Earlier this week, there was a fatal minivan crash on a 101 Freeway offramp in Hollywood. According to KTLA News Channel Five, the wreck happened early Thursday morning near the 1800 block of North Vine Street. Apparently, a minivan was exiting the 101 at the Vine Street offramp, when for unknown reasons, it ran off of the road. The minivan hit a curb, went through a guardrail, hit a tree and crashed into a fence beside the roadway.

There were two men in the minivan at the time of the crash. One of them was ejected from the vehicle, and that person was pronounced dead on the scene. The other man was transported to a local hospital for treatment of serious injuries. Initial reports indicate that speed may have been a factor, but the cause of this crash is likely still under investigation with local law enforcement officials.
