One person suffered minor injuries early this morning after their vehicle crashed into a light pole on Sunset Boulevard where it curves to the south at Mohawk Street, a section of  road that has been the scene of several accidents in recent years and has been nicknamed the Mohawk Bend.  Sgt. Sandor with the LAPD Central Traffic Bureau said one person was arrested on suspicion of driving while under the influence following the accident that took place shortly before 2 a.m. It appears the vehicle was traveling eastbound on Sunset Boulevard when it knocked down a light pole, parking meter and Bike Lane sign and also damaged the fence in front of the Lucy’s Laundrymart at Sunset and Mohawk.

The bend has a reputation for auto accidents, with motorists losing control as they take on the curve going too fast. In 2009, a 21-year-old driver was killed when her car -traveling at at estimated 70 miles per hour – skidded out of control and slammed into the corner of Lucy’s Laundrymart.
