Two cousins, Juan and Jose, were out drinking last night when Juan asked Jose to drive his car home. But Jose had been drinking too. He lost control of the car and crashed into a poll northeast of downtown Los Angeles.
We know all this because Jose, who at first fled the scene, returned and told this story to KTTV reporter Gigi Graciette.
Graciette and her photographer were rolling on the interview, and used it in her morning live shots. Police gave Jose a field sobriety test. They also informed him that his cousin was killed in the crash.
