According to ABC 7, three people were killed and three others were critically injured in a suspected DUI car accident in South Los Angeles.
The fatal car accident was reported around 7:30 p.m. near the intersection of Hoover and West 76th streets, when a suspected DUI driver crashed into another vehicle, causing both vehicles to immediately erupt in flames.
The suspected DUI driver was the only occupant in his vehicle at the time of the crash.
As a result, three people – an adult, child, and infant – were killed in the fatal car accident. In addition, two adults and a child sustained critical injuries and were transported to a nearby hospital.
Witnesses tried to help the occupants of the second vehicle as much as they could before there was an explosion, which caused the crowd to move back.
The suspected DUI driver was taken to a hospital with critical injuries and was later booked on suspicion of DUI.
