Woman, 77, Is Killed in Parking Garage Crash

A 77-year-old Tarzana woman died Friday after her car went out of control in an underground parking garage, Los Angeles police said.

The woman, whose name was unavailable, died shortly after the accident in the 5400 block of Zelzah Avenue, Officer Jack Jung said. The woman was backing out of a parking stall when she lost control and backed the car into wall, Jung said.

She then shifted the car into drive, struck a pillar and hit a second wall head-on, Jung said.

Jung said he did not know what caused the woman to lose control of the car.

“It’s kind of puzzling,” he said.
