Local news

A woman was killed and five other people were critically injured in a crash in Wilmington Monday morning, officials said.

The crash occurred about 10:50 a.m. in the 1000 block of North Wilmington Boulevard, the Los Angeles Fire Department said in an alert.

A preliminary investigation revealed the first vehicle hit the second vehicle, causing that vehicle to lose control and strike a woman crossing the street, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Tim Gomez, who was involved in the crash, said the driver of a white Toyota ran a red light and T-boned a black Chevrolet Tahoe.

“He wasn’t slowing down,” Gomez said of the Toyota driver.

The pedestrian was taken to a hospital but died, Officer Jeff Lee told KTLA. She has not been identified.

The five occupants of the two vehicles were also transported and were listed as having moderate to severe injuries. Gomez said the driver of the Toyota was pinned in the vehicle and witnesses tried to get him out before help arrived.

Several fire trucks responded to the scene, and the two vehicles were left with heavy front-end damage, aerial video from Sky5 showed.
