The driver was transported to the hospital immediately, hindering officers’ attempts at determining if alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash. Santa Monica Police later obtained a warrant for the driver’s blood.

Investigators also found that two people were with the driver just before the crash but they were not in the car at the time it went over the side of the parking structure.
