One person died and another was critically injured when a car crashed into several parked cars and a tree in the Hancock Park neighborhood of Los Angeles late Thursday night.

The crash occurred around 11:30 p.m. in the 100 block of South Rossmore Avenue.

Authorities say a white Mitsubishi sedan with two men inside was traveling southbound between Beverly Boulevard and 3rd Street when the driver lost control.

The sedan sideswiped multiple parked vehicles and then ran into a tree, ejecting the passenger and trapping the driver, who was later pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver was later identified by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner as being 30-year-old Ruben Gonzalez.

The Los Angeles Fire Department said the other victim was also in his 30s.

Investigators say speed was likely a factor in the crash.
