Long Beach, CA (April 15, 2019) – A Hawaii woman was killed in a crash in Long Beach. The accident occurred on the evening of April 15 on the 405 Freeway.

The crash happened when the driver of a Tesla made an unsafe turn. The vehicle hit a raised concrete curb at the Lakewood Boulevard on-ramp. The Tesla then hit a Chevrolet, causing the right rear door of the Tesla to come off.

Judith Blankenfeld, 77, was ejected from the Tesla. She was hit by a BMW driven by a 54-year-old woman from Long Beach. She died at the accident scene.

The driver of the Tesla, a 78-year-old man, and another passenger, a 73-year-old woman, suffered minor injuries. Both are from San Clemente. Both were wearing seatbelts, but Blankenfeld was not.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to the friends and loved ones of Judith Blankenfeld.

Ladder Accidents

Ladders may seem fairly simple to use. After all, all you have to do is climb up the rungs until you reach your desired height. However, ladder use is more complicated than you may think. It’s also very dangerous, resulting in 90,000 emergency room visits and killing 700 employees every year. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) believes that all of these injuries and deaths could be prevented.
