Derrick Gardner Passes Away after Hit by Car



It appears that Derrick Gardner, the 22 year old young man that was hit by a car last week in West Hollywood, has passed away.

Derrick Gardner

We feel terrible about the previous news we reported that turned out to be incorrect, but now we are hearing from Bobby Trendy that he passed away at 2:45am this morning.   Bobby was with him yesterday and overnight.

Derrick was being cared for at the Sapperstein Critical Care  Tower at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, according to Bobby.

We received another email in the early morning hours from someone else close to Derrick but, perhaps due to the grief, the message wasn’t clear.

The accident occurred at San Vicente and Rangely, just south of Melrose Avenue, on Thursday, July 1.   The area has been trying to get a crosswalk installed near that location for years.

Derrick’s mother said in an email to WehoConfidential:

I just want to Thank you all for your kind words. I will update all of you. Derrick came into the Hospital Thursday after being hit by a car..His injuries were so servere he was instantly in a coma on scene. They did surgery as his brain was so swollen. They took off his left side of his skull to try and relieve pressu…re. The truth is he was gone and they couldn’t do anything. We sit here waiting for him to pass. Please keep all the great memories of Derrick alive and not the negative ones. He wasn’t perfect but he was loved by many. The family has not set up any donations for him just yet to help with the funeral cost so if asked for a donation please know We did not set this up.

We are gathering information to follow up to this post with an obituary.  If you knew Derrick, please contact us using the “contact us” to let us know information about him, or post in the comments section below.

    Derrick’s death is a real tragedy. He worked for me when he was living in Maine. He was always a kind, caring, and fun person. The world is a much sadder place without him. His friends will always remember his great smile and enthusiasm. We will miss him very much. My sincere condolences to his family. How sad!

    My heartfelt condolances to Derrick’s family. He was a shining star who burned vibrantly and brightly and, like that star, he streaked thru our lives all too quickly.
    If I may be of any help with anything whatsoever, have someone contact me and I’ll send my phone number and then just tell me what you need done and I assure you it will get done. Again, a truly kind, dear, funny and beautiful person has left us heartsick but with memories that will only appreciate with the gift and grace of time. Peace be with you all.

    My God! Not that it matters, to David and Bobby; STOP IT! What the he’ll is wrong with the two of you. If you want to argue, go right ahead… But find another place to do it. Class: not something you can buy; you either have it or you don’t. You should both be ashamed. I know I am for both of you.

    I opine thers something wrong with you- some one who’s upset with his life living a life of frivolity and pontifcating comments with unintended consequence,Bob I was there at the hospital for Derrick all day sunday through out the nite holding his hand. While others just posted on their face books and others sites..I saw most of those queens at the club last nite which is ten lites further from westhollywood when the hospital he was in was only two lights down the street. Bob will do you me a have favor and just kiss my ass? Thanx

    Can you PLEASE stop the arguing. With the loss of my nephew Derrick, our family has enough to go through without all the added DRAMA. I want to thank everyone of you that had kind words to say about my nephew and the rest of you .. take your drama elsewhere. It’s time to grow up and realise that this is our time to grieve Derrick .. not make a mockery of his precious memories. I love you Derrick and you will always be with me.

    I didn’t know you Derrick but I did know of you. Too young to be gone so soon. No more pain and struggle for you now and may you rest with God. My heart hurts for your Mom and your family as I am a Mother and I have a son who is around your age and can’t imagine life without him in it. RIP and god bless.

    I am very sorry to ask this as I know that it is all still so new and the pain is still great (I am feeling it), but will there be a memorial service held here in Maine where Derrick was from? I know many people here that would like nothing more then to pay their respects…myself included. Please contact me is anyone has any further information….RIP Derrick, we love you!!! (

    Derrick was a fun sprit at all the clubs and will be very very missed. As Far you Bobby Trendy haters goe- its seems that when tragedy surmounts Bobby comes through-seems to everyone he was the only one who was in the hospital and cared enough to visit while others just posted online messages..I rememeber when Kiwi and Hunter died in 2007 what how his generous pocket book spoke and how he came forward…Even cleaned up thier apts and sent belongings back to family memebers..Alot is said just for visting a person who is laying down in my opinion…I live wayyy in palmsprings now..if any thing should happen I know at least one person will come see me.RIP Derrick

    hey derrick…if your reading this,then you already know what I’m bout to write …and how I feel….I barelly knew you…and I thank god for at least letting me have a chance to meet you…God works in mysterious ways and he ALWAYS place certain people in your life to shape you, learn from and make you the person we are today….everything happens for a reason…your departure wasnt a fair reason…BUT GOD MAKES NO MISTAKES!!! HE AN AWESOME AND OPEN MINDED GOD, THERE IS NOTHING!!!!!! ON THIS PLANET!!!!! THAT GOD HAS NO UNDERSTANDING FOR!!! and god forgive those who were close to Derrick for their outwrong judgemental outburst,especially on a time like this, were human, and you gave us the power to grieve with no understanding….i had fun being apart of that music video with you, los angeles was so overwhelming to me, im a little city boy trying to make it in the big city, and you were so eager to show me around L.A., the ends and outs, where to go and….that video may not have that much exposure, but I see now that the time was irreplacable and Im grateful now for what it was….Im an aspiring actor, and though I’ve just started, this journey has taken me through so much and Ive met so many other people who have the same dreams as me..and sometimes i had to watch them come to an end….Derrick, I’m doing this for us!!!! watch over me bro, give me the wisdom to choose from right and wrong, dont let me fall into drugs or the fall into the fakeness that this career brings!!!…I’ll never forget you!!!

    He was a special person and close friend – unfortunately there were some circumstances that grew us apart. We were sidekicks who traveled across the US and had one hell of a time. He was an amazing young man and I hope that a movie is done about him.

Now at Least 188 Virus Cases in WeHo and Surrounding Areas



 Los Angeles County Announces Six New Deaths Related to 
2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) with 344 New Cases of Confirmed in Los Angeles County today.

LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) has confirmed six new deaths and 344 new cases of 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).  All of the five deaths reported yesterday occurred in people over the age of 60 who had underlying health conditions. Additional information regarding some of the new cases is pending further investigation. Over the last 48 hours, there have been 601 new cases.

West Hollywood is up to 50 cases. Beverly Hills has 21, Hollywood 38, Hollywood Hills 23, Melrose area 56. The County was previously reporting Park La Brea numbers but has made changes to the current report that does not include this at a distinct stat.

To date, Public Health has identified 1804 cases across all areas of LA County, including 32 deaths.  Upon further investigation, three cases reported earlier were not LA County residents. As of today, 398 positive cases (22% of positive cases) have been hospitalized.

On March 27, a Health Officer Order was issued to temporarily close all beaches and hiking trails throughout the entire County due to recent dramatic increases in COVID-19 cases, and increased usage of beaches and hiking trails by many groups of people.  It is imperative that everyone, collectively, take action to slow the spread of COVID-19. County and City Parks may remain open for passive recreational activities. Persons using the parks are required to practice social distancing at all times.  The Order will continue through April 19.

“We are sad to announce six additional deaths from COVID-19 today,” said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Los Angeles County Public Health Director. “More than ever, it is crucial that we practice social distancing, and if we are sick, even with mild illness, we make every effort to self-isolate from others for at least 7 days.  Those who have been in close contact with a person who is positive for COVID-19 should self-quarantine for 14 days.   Please do your part to not infect others or become infected yourself by adhering to the public health directives and practicing social distancing whenever you do go outside. If we all commit ourselves to stay home, stay away from others when sick, and stay 6 feet apart when out, we will save lives. “

Public Health has issued the following guidance for people with mild illness during this time of increased spread:

  • If you are mildly sick, stay home for at least seven days and until 72 hours after being fever and symptom free. Call your doctor if you are concerned and/or your symptoms worsen. Individuals who are elderly, have underlying health conditions or pregnant should consider contacting their providers earlier when they are sick.

Additional things you can do to protect yourself, your family and your community are on the Public Health website,

More Than 100 Virus Cases To-Date in WeHo & Adjacent Areas; Youth Dies



LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) has confirmed three new deaths and 128 new cases of 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). One individual was a youth under the age of 18, and two other individuals were between 50-70 years old.

There have now been over 100 reported cases in West Hollywood and adjacent areas. Today, West Hollywood added 8 cases to rise to a total of 31. Surrounding areas have risen to the following: Hollywood 19, Hollywood Hills 9, Beverly Hills 12, Melrose 26, Park La Brea 8.

Of the deaths, one of the individuals between 50-70 years old had underlying health conditions and resided in West Adams, the other is from a location that is still under investigation. The individual under the age of 18 resided in Lancaster. Because there are positive cases across the entire County, the public should not think one location is safer than the other. Additional information regarding some of the new cases is pending further investigation. Over the last 48 hours there have been 256 new cases.

To date, Public Health has identified 662 cases across all areas of LA County, including 11 deaths. This includes one new death reported by Long Beach yesterday.  Upon completion of investigations, two cases reported earlier were not LA County residents. As of today, 119 positive cases have been hospitalized.

Public Health is investigating all new cases and will notify close contacts who are household members, intimate partners and healthcare professionals to assess and monitor them for signs and symptoms of illness. All confirmed cases are being isolated and close contacts are quarantined.  It is critically important that everyone adheres to all the social distancing measures and practice good public health hygiene, including washing hands as frequently as possible.

“Each loss we experience in LA County is tragic, and we are sending our heartfelt condolences to the families and loved ones who’ve had to endure this tragedy,” said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Los Angeles County Public Health Director. “COVID-19 does not discriminate by age, race or income level, and what we are seeing in places like New York is indicative of what we should prepare to experience here. While Public Health is doing everything possible to mitigate the impact of this disease in our community, we can only flatten the curve if EVERYONE takes social distancing seriously and adheres to all isolation and quarantine orders issued by our Health Officer.”

On March, 21 Public Health issued an enhanced Health Officer Order to reconcile elements in the March 19 Health Officer Order necessary to be consistent with the Governor’s Order.  The enhanced Order prohibits all gatherings and events, and clarifies that golf courses and personal grooming services (including hair and nail salons) are non-essential services that should remain closed.  The Order can be found online:

Public Health has issued the following guidance during this time of increased spread:

  • If you are mildly sick, stay home for at least seven days or until 72 hours after being fever free, whichever is longer. Call your doctor if you are concerned and/or your symptoms worsen. Individuals who are elderly, have underlying health conditions or pregnant should consider contacting their providers earlier when they are sick.

Public Health reminds LA County residents to do their part and adhere to the Order by always practicing social distancing.

Additional things you can do to protect yourself, your family and your community are on the Public Health website.

LA County Jumps to 61 New Virus Cases, WeHo Adds 3 Cases



LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) has confirmed 61 new cases of 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Over the last 48 hours there have been 101 new cases.  Because there are positive cases across the entire County, the public should not think one location is safer than the other.  Additional information regarding some of the new cases are pending completion of an investigation.

To date, Public Health has identified 292 cases across all areas in LA County including two deaths, so everyone needs to practice social distancing and good public health hygiene. West Hollywood is up to 15 cases from 12 yesterday. Beverly Hills has 5 cases to date, Hollywood has 7, Hollywood Hills has 2, and “Melrose” has 11 cases.

Public Health is investigating these cases and will notify close contacts who are household members, intimate partners and healthcare professionals to assess and monitor them for signs and symptoms of illness. All confirmed cases are being isolated and close contacts are quarantined.

“Our State, County and Local leaders have entered the next phase in protecting the health of our population and slowing the spread of COVID-19,” said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Los Angeles County Public Health Director. “Non-essential businesses are ordered to close and everyone is ordered to be safe at home unless you are an essential worker. Essential services –  those that ensure we have our medicine and healthcare, food to eat, water to drink, communications and electricity – may all remain open and operating.  We thank all of those who are working in these essential roles for their service during these very difficult times.”

An enhanced Health Officer Order was issued on March 19 closing all nonessential business and restricting all gatherings and events; the Order continues the previous closure and the new closures through April 19, 2020. The Order can be found online:

Public Health has issued the following guidance during this time of increased spread:

If you are mildly sick, stay home for at least seven days or until 72 hours after being fever free, whichever is longer. Call your doctor if you are concerned and/or your symptoms worsen. Individuals who are elderly, have underlying health conditions or pregnant should consider contacting their providers earlier when they are sick.

Public Health reminds LA County residents to do their part by adhering to the Order by always practicing social distancing.
