AM Briefing from for June 4, 2013


Authorities are looking for the driver of a pickup truck that crashed on the 5 freeway then ran off leaving his severely hurt 4-year-old son behind. At around 8:00 PM last Sunday 40-year-old Angelo Fabiani Arroyo crashed his 2004 Nisan Titan while driving south on the five near Rosecrans. His truck slammed into a guardrail and palm tree then came to a stop on its side dangling off of a retaining wall. It’s thought that Arroyo tried to free his son causing the 4-year-old to fall at least 10-feet hitting his head. The toddler is in the hospital with severe head trauma. Anyone with any info on Arroyo’s whereabouts should call California Highway Patrol at 619-220-5492.

At 8:30 this morning the group Concerned Citizens of Southern California will hear from Japan’s former Prime Minister about nuclear safety.
