Detectives believe the victim was attacked while inside her Jeep
The Santa Monica Police Department is seeking witnesses to a violent attack on a female driver involved in a solo vehicle collision earlier this year. Detectives believe the victim was attacked while inside her Jeep.
According to the Santa Monica Police Department (SMPD), on January 10, 2023, around 11:40 p.m., patrol officers were dispatched to a traffic collision involving a solo vehicle at the intersection of 17th Street and Olympic Boulevard.
“When officers arrived on scene, they observed a white 4-door Jeep Wrangler that had jumped the curb and run into the wall on the northeast sidewalk of the intersection,” the SMPD said.
SMPD officers contacted the solo occupant, a female sitting in the driver’s seat, who had significant injuries to her face with blood on her hands, face, and body.
“Officers noticed that these injuries were not consistent with the accident. The female victim told officers she had trouble remembering several hours of the day, including how she sustained her injuries,” the SMPD said.
Based on victim’s injuries, along with evidence in the car, SMPD detectives believe the victim was violently attacked while inside of her Jeep.No witnesses have come forward and detectives have not been able to locate any public or private video footage that could provide them with further details pertaining to what occurred.
Detectives are seeking witnesses who may have been in the area at the time of the incident.
Anyone with any additional information pertaining to this incident or person(s) involved is strongly encouraged to contact SMPD Detective Brian Spencer at 310-458-8420, email@example.com or the Watch Commander (24 hours) at 310-458-8426.
