Alleged Driver Who Repeatedly Rammed Mercedes Into Parked Car Near Taco Truck Turns Herself In

The woman allegedly behind the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz that repeatedly rammed into another vehicle near a taco truck in Hollywood last month has turned herself in, authorities said Thursday.

Amber Rose Darbinyan, 23, turned herself into the Los Angeles Police Department in connection with the Aug. 25 caught-on-camera incident, police said.

On Tuesday, September 10, the victims of the incident are set to speak at the Los Angeles Police Department, Hollywood Division at 2 p.m, officials said.

Christopher Kulpaca and Reilley Hern were both injured when they were inside the Ford Mustang as Darbinyan rammed her vehicle into theirs, their attorney said.

Kulpaca is the registered owner of the Mustang and was injured when his knee was allegedly hit by Darbinyan’s vehicle during her actions of that night.

Hern was behind the wheel of the Mustang at the time of the incident and was also injured as he was trying to move the vehicle out of the parking lot.

Security footage from a nearby business allegedly shows Darbinyan repeatedly backing up her silver Mercedes-Benz into another parked vehicle behind her.

Witnesses at the taco truck, located on Western and Lexington avenues, say it all started when the woman began yelling at someone to move the car that was preventing her from exiting.

Lyft Driver Attacked by Passengers

A Lyft driver was attacked and badly beaten by passengers in South Los Angeles last week.

Robert, 57, remembers dropping off the passengers in South Los Angeles at 2 a.m. Upon arriving at the destination, a man in the front seat reached over, punched him in the face and took his keys. The other three men jumped out of the backseat and beat him.

The four attackers, all men in their early 20s, took the man’s wallet, $700 worth of property in cash and his car.

Los Angeles Police Department labeled the incident a carjacking. The suspects crashed and totaled the car.

Three of the men were arrested and a fourth one, hospitalized.

Robert was left stranded by his robbers, and now he fears his ride share will leave him stranded as well.

His attorney, Raffi Naljian, said the total of the medical bills sum up $20.000 and Lyft doesn’t want to cover it.

“Lyft needs to say, you know what, he’s our driver,” Naljian said, “he was working for us, we have to pay for him.”

Robert is worried that he won’t be able to provide for his family.

“I don’t have a job, I don’t have a car, I’m married, I have a family,” he said, “I really need the time to fix myself.
