Lester Larios, 55, and Angie Ruiz, 15, died in the two-car collision, which occurred Saturday shortly before 4:30 p.m. in the intersection of Garfield Avenue and El Paseo Street.

Larios and Ruiz died at the scene, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department. Five people were taken to a local hospital, including three in critical condition.

A GoFundMe page was created on Sunday for the victims' funerals.

The crash occurred when a white car turning into the Town Center Plaza shopping mall was struck by a beige Mercedes-Benz that "was driving fast," witness Aaron Ponce said.

Speed was believed to have been a factor in the collision, but that remained under investigation, according to Sgt. Chris Dahlia of the South Gate Police Department.

"We don't know if someone ran a red light yet," he said.

Investigators were attempting to locate any possible surveillance footage of the crash.
