A Mercedes traveling west on Sunset was making a left-hand turn when the accident happened. The motorcyclists were traveling eastbound. One motorcycle, and its driver flew over the car hitting a tree on sunset. Three other motorcycles went into the side of the Mercedes, and the motorcyclists were transported to UCLA Medical Center. The Mercedes’ airbags deployed both in front and on the right side of the car.
