Two people were killed in a violent crash in La Mirada Saturday morning.
The crash happened around 7:55 a.m. near the intersection of Rosecrans Avenue and Beach Boulevard.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s investigators said the vehicle, believed to be a gray 2008 Chrysler 300, was traveling at a high rate of speed eastbound on Rosecrans when it crashed into a fire hydrant and a power pole.
Video from the scene shows tire skid marks leading to the resting spot of the sedan, which was torn to shreds with debris scattered across the roadway.
Both the driver and the passenger were killed at the scene, LASD said. Their identities have not yet been released, but authorities said the driver was a man and the passenger was a woman in her 20s.
The two were thrown from the car, and it’s not clear if they were wearing seatbelts, according to LASD.
“It is unknown if alcohol and/or drugs were factors in the collision,” the LASD added in a news release.
Anyone who may have witnessed this collision is asked to contact the Norwalk Sheriff’s Station Traffic Detail at 562-863-8711.
