Despite the rash of abandoned couches around the city, a North Hollywood couch proved to be a silent hero in a car accident on the 10000 block of West Victory Boulevard. Yes, the car just happened to land that way, according to d'Lisa Davies, spokesperson for the LAFD. Did hitting the couch help? "It probably cushioned the blow," Davies tells us. The 30-year-old driver walked away uninjured. There are a few more pics of the hero couch--someone give him a medal and a parade!-- in the LAFD's Flickr set of the incident. © Photo by Rick McClure, used under Creative Commons license.
