Los Angeles, CA (July 12, 2020) – On Saturday evening, a 45-year-old Charlton Caldwell of Compton died in a three-car crash on Vermont Avenue.
 
The crash happened at around 9:35 p.m. on July 11.
 
Reportedly, Caldwell was driving a 2007 black Saab 20T travelling southbound in the No. 1 lane on Vermont Avenue, when a white 2007 BMW 328i going eastbound on 106th Street failed to stop for a stop sign.
 
The vehicle then moved directly into the path of another white 2007 BMW going southbound on Vermont.
 
Caldwell tried to avoid the crash by swerving to the left, hitting the concrete centre median. His car then left the roadway and struck a tree. He died upon impact.
 
Meanwhile, medics transported another motorist, a 39-year-old man from Los Angeles, to Centinela Hospital Medical Center in Inglewood with minor injuries.
