On July 27, 2022, at 8:25 PM, officers from the South Pasadena Police Department responded to a report of a major injury traffic collision at the intersection of Marengo Avenue and Maple Street. Officers arrived on the scene to find a white Toyota Sienna had struck three pedestrians.
The Police Department’s traffic unit responded to the scene and assumed the investigation. The preliminary investigation revealed the Toyota Sienna was traveling northbound on Marengo Avenue when it entered the intersection with Maple Street, failing to stop for the posted stop sign. The Toyota collided with three adult pedestrians, one male and two female, who were crossing the intersection. All three pedestrians suffered serious injuries and were transported to area hospitals for advanced medical care.
