Leslie Jordan - Crash site location

This is the location where actor Leslie Jordan died in a car crash.

It is situated at 946 North Cahuenga Boulevard in Los Angeles, California.

The accident took place at roughly 9.30 a.m. on October 24th, 2022, while Jordan was reportedly driving to work.

The actor lost control of his BMW while he was heading northbound on Cahuenga Boulevard.

As he approached the intersection with Romaine Street, his car suddenly veered sharply to the right and crashed into the metal veneer on the side of this building.

When the paramedics arrived, the 67-year-old had no pulse. Following 40 minutes of CPR, he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Although it wasn't clear what caused the accident, the authorities immediately expressed their belief that Jordan had suffered a medical emergency.

This is because the limited damage to the front of the vehicle indicated that he wasn't driving at a fast speed.

Unexpected medical emergencies, such as strokes, heart attacks, and fainting, are a relatively common cause of car accidents. For example, in 2011, wrestling legend Randy Savage suffered a heart attack and crashed into a tree while he was driving in Seminole, Florida.

Notably, in the weeks before the accident, Jordan had scheduled an appointment with a cardiologist after he began experiencing shortness of breath.

In January of 2023, the coroner's office confirmed that the actor had suffered a sudden cardiac arrest due to arteriosclerosis, which is a cardiovascular disease that causes the arteries to harden.

Although he was taking heart medication, one of his arteries was 80% blocked.

When Jordan's car was towed away and the street was reopened, his fans paid their respects by leaving flowers and handwritten notes at the crash site.

The beloved actor, who rose to fame as Beverley Leslie on the sitcom Will & Grace, had recently picked up a huge following on social media. In 2020, he began uploading humorous videos to Instagram, many of which were shared across other platforms such as TikTok and Facebook.

At the time of his death, he had more than 5.8 million followers.

Jordan's BMW crashed into the side of this commercial unit at 946 North Cahuenga Boulevard.

Judging by Google Street View images, the metal veneer on the outside of the building was only added in the past year.

At the time of the accident, he was driving to work at the "Call Me Kat" filming set at the Warner Bros. studio in Burbank.

In the show, the diminutive actor portrayed Phil, a recently single gay man who works alongside the main character, Kat, at a cat cafe in Louisville.

Following his death, Fox announced that it was pausing production of the sitcom.

This aerial image shows the direction that Leslie Jordan was driving in when he lost control of his vehicle.

Judging by the limited damage to the front of the BMW, it seems as though he was driving at a relatively slow speed.

This, coupled with the sudden loss of control, indicated that the actor had died from a health condition instead of the actual collision.

Videos on TikTok and YouTube show dragging marks on the road. These marks are misleading, as they make it appear as though Jordan was driving southbound.

However, footage from TMZ confirms that they were actually created at a later stage, when the tow truck was dragging the BMW away from the wall.

These photographs show the BMW being towed away.

The passenger side wheel was badly damaged. However, the front of the vehicle was relatively OK.

Modern cars are designed to crumple at the front and back. The "crumple zone" is a safety feature that helps absorb some of the impact.

However, in this case, it seems as though Jordan wasn't going fast enough to activate the feature.
