Just before 2 a.m., two women were killed and three others injured, including the driver, when the vehicle crashed into a chain-link fence and a tree, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The single-car crash happened on the northbound side of the freeway near Avenue 52.

The car was so badly mangled that Los Angeles city firefighters had to cut the women out of the vehicle.

The five people inside the Nissan ranged in age from 22 to 23 years old, the CHP said in a statement.

Two of the passengers were pronounced dead at the scene, according to the CHP.
