A 19-year-old North Hollywood High School student will get $2.4 million from LAUSD after he allegedly broke his neck during a football tryout, reports the L.A. Times. He was apparently not provided a helmet during the practice.

A tree over 100 feet tall fell in Studio City over the holiday weekend, reports NBC. "I thought it was about 20 raccoons having a field day in the tree," says one resident who heard cracking before the tumble. 

A couple survived a car crash in North Hollywood on Monday that sent them into a wall near an apartment building, the Daily News reports.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is investigating an incident that left one person trapped under a Metro Red Line train Tuesday afternoon, LAist reports. The victim was sent to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, but their condition was unknown Tuesday evening.
