(Los Angeles, CA) -- Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti is discussing an accident involving a LAPD car he was inside of. Garcetti was riding in a police vehicle Wednesday afternoon when it struck a female pedestrian in the downtown area. The woman was taken to an area hospital in unknown condition. Garcetti says he was on the phone at the time and didn't see the woman get hit. He's hoping the woman has a "speedy recovery" and plans to meet her at the hospital "soon."
