Twin Sisters Fatally Struck By Truck While Fighting In South LA Street

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Two women identified as twin sisters were killed Sunday after being hit by a truck on a South Los Angeles street.

Officer Norma Eisenman of the Los Angeles Police Department says the incident began as a fight between the pair that spilled onto the streets. It occurred about 3 a.m. on Leimert Boulevard just north of 43rd Street.

“The altercation they were having ended up out on the street somehow,” Eisenman said. “They were both struck by a vehicle.”

A woman, who witnessed the crash, told KNX 1070′s Ed Mertz that a heavyset woman was pulling a thinner woman by the hair.

That’s when the eyewitness says a nearby traffic light turned green and a truck came through and struck the women.

“He hit the bodies and rode them over and the thinner girl who was on her knees just propelled like in the air and then when he got to her body again, he just rolled over,” the eyewitness said.

Eisenman said both women were pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver did return to the scene, according to the eyewitness . An investigation was ongoing.

The girls were of course idiots.

The Gene pool got a little shallower. Not much anyone can say about this. I’m sorry for the family but there is no cure for stupid.

Possibly paternal.

They’ve probably identified the sisters, but haven’t released any personal details.

I'd like to diagram that sentence, but the nuns would kill me.

Can we get a translation of this sentence?

Let’s see. He was driving at three in the morning and they were out on the street fighting, where they should not have been, and he didn’t see them.

If Obama had sisters, it would have been them.

The trucker is obviously a racist.

I will translate.

He hit bodies, at which point a skinny girl who was kneeling nearby jumped into the air while a man was seen rolling over.

Kinda makes ones eyes ache.....

Notice how a truck can run over 2 combatants at 3AM and there are tons of witnesses.

A gunman can off a couple of people in downtown LA at high noon with thousands of pedestrians etc around and NARY A ONE has seen anything.

The use of 'Amish' has been a way to ridicule the journalist community. Once you complain about it, it will be all you hear. People will probably even ping you with 'Amish' comments.

It's like getting called a name like 'stinky' or 'chubs' in Jr. High and telling kids that you hate it. That toothpaste ain't goin' back in the tube!

Indeed. I am no historian of FReeper history, but my addled memory has it as a backlash to the MSM refusal to ID the perps in crimes that later were clearly black/negro, whatever floats your boat.

Amish became a sarcastic code for what was patently obvious from the MSM omission of ID of characteristics. The Amish being a notoriously violent culture, of course made it a natural choice.

Funny how that ID is rarely lacking if it is one of the non-PC groups.......

Amish became a defensive euphemism against the “racism” obsessed. You cannot accuse someone using the word of the cardinal/criminal sin (ask Mark Fuhrman) of “racism”!

How do they know they were twins, one was fat the other thin?!

They knew they were twins because they couldn't tell who was the fat one and who was the thin one.

Possibly paternal.

They’ve probably identified the sisters, but haven’t released any personal details.

I believe that the type of twins to which you are referring is called "fraternal," or non-identical twins, who each started out as a separate egg, fertilized by separate sperm. I am a fraternal twin. My twin and I look less like each other than do my younger siser and I.
