A violent overnight crash left one person dead and two others injured in Gardena Tuesday morning.

The solo-vehicle collision occurred around midnight near the intersection of Normandie Avenue and West Redondo Beach Boulevard.

Video from the scene showed the vehicle was left wrapped around a pole in front of a nearby Starbucks.

Three males were in the car at the time of the crash, Gardena Police Department Lt. Hyde said at the scene.

Two of the crash victims were taken to a local hospital in unknown condition. The third was pronounced dead at the scene, Hyde said.

No further details about the victims were immediately available.

Investigators are still working to determine the cause of the crash but a witness at the scene said he thinks the car was traveling at 80 or 90 mph before the driver lost control and hit the pole.
