A driver was in custody Tuesday after his car allegedly struck and killed a man in North Hollywood, police said. The victim, in his 30s, was standing behind a parked van on the 7300 block of Clyborn Avenue about 6 a.m., putting on shoes, when he was crushed between the moving car and the van, said Sgt. David Delgado of the LAPD's Valley Traffic Division. “The collision actually forced the vehicle that was hit into two other parked vehicles,” Delgado said. A female passenger in the car that hit the victim received minor injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital, authorities said.

This post has been updated. See note below for details. Bob Dylan famously called Smokey Robinson “America's greatest living poet” for the exquisite beauty, pain and affection in lyrics to “Tracks of My Tears,” “Tears of a Clown” and so many other songs Robinson wrote and sang during his heyday at Motown in the 1960s and 1970s. Now, Robinson's ready to share a side of his poetry largely separated from music in “Words,” a spoken-word program built around several long-form poems that Robinson will present in a pair of shows this weekend in North Hollywood.

Sophomore Dante Clay was granted unrestricted eligibility to play football at North Hollywood High this season by vote of the City Section rules committee Wednesday. Clay was thrust into the spotlight in the spring when Taft Coach Troy Starr was caught actively recruiting the promising running back, who played on Crespi's freshmen team last season. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Clay, who visited Taft and was given a campus tour by Starr, will play Friday in North Hollywood's game against Franklin.

It was billed as a battle of the ground attack. North Hollywood features two running backs in the Valley-area City Section top 10, and the Sylmar backfield consists of cousins Sean and Michael Hampton. So, most expected an offensive show similar to an Oklahoma-Nebraska showdown. Passing was almost an afterthought for the two teams in previous games. So much for predictions and previews.

Sylmar High, a highly regarded City Section 4-A Division team, had to rely on its stingy defense to edge upstart North Hollywood, 13-7, Friday night in a Valley Pac-8 Conference opener at Sylmar. Sylmar, which annihilated El Camino Real, 55-0, a week ago, found North Hollywood--a 3-A team that was winless last season--a worthy opponent. "That's a good football team," Sylmar Coach Jeff Engilman said of North Hollywood. "They're going to win a lot of games."

Arson investigators Monday evening were probing a blaze at a North Hollywood apartment building that left one person dead and four others injured. The fire broke out Monday morning at the two-story structure in the 5100 block of Riverton Avenue and engulfed an apartment unit with intense flames and choking smoke, the Los Angeles Fire Department said. "This was a well-involved, intense fire," department spokesman Erik Scott told The Times. The blaze was so hot that it blackened firefighters' helmets, and the thick smoke forced rescuers to use an infrared search device to find victims trapped in the structure. The man who died was discovered by a firefighter with the infrared device.
