Woodland Hills Man Found Dead

WOODLAND HILLS — The body of a 31-year-old man from Woodland Hills was found in the driver’s seat of a 2008 Cadillac STS that had crashed into the Tujunga Wash. At 7:15 a.m. on Thursday, January 2, firefighters saw the car from a parking lot behind Station 86, which overlooks a stretch of the Tujunga Wash.

 

Firefighters ran to the car and discovered the body. Fallen trees and broken fences off the Hollywood (101) Freeway provided evidence of the car’s descent; after veering off the road, the car had careened over 100 feet into the Tujunga Wash near 4305 Vineland Ave., landing on its left side.

 

Tujunga Wash is a 13-mile-long, man-made stream and is a tributary of the Los Angeles River. The Cadillac had crashed into the concrete at the bottom of the Wash and was submerged in six inches of water. The exact cause of the crash has not yet been determined. No witnesses reported seeing the car leave the road, but it has been confirmed that the man was not wearing a seatbelt by officials. 

 

Officials are currently investigating the case and a toxicology report is in process. The man’s identity will be withheld until relatives are notified of the death.
