A 2016 Mercedes-Benz crashed into a 1997 Honda at Harvard Boulevard and 120th Street around 10:30 p.m. on Saturday, according to California Highway Patrol.

The driver of the Honda, a 34-year-old Beverly Hills woman, made a complete stop at the stop sign on Harvard Boulevard before turning left toward the westbound side of 120th Street, CHP said in a statement.

The Mercedes, traveling east on 120th Street at an unknown speed, hit the left side of the Honda, according to the agency.

CHP initially said the Honda's driver made an unsafe turn.

The woman lost control of the Honda and the Mercedes crashed into a wooden pole, the agency said.

The woman, whose identity has not been released, suffered major internal trauma and succumbed to her injuries at the scene, according to CHP.

The agency said the driver and passenger of the Mercedes, both male, were seen getting out of their vehicle and going inside a newer model, white four-door BMW sedan that arrived at the scene.

The BMW was last sighted traveling east on 120th street, the agency said.

Investigators have yet to determine whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved. Earlier, CHP said they were not considered to be factors in the collision.

The incident remained under investigation.

Anyone with information can call CHP's West L.A. area office at 310-642-3939.
