Two women were killed, and others were injured, when two cars collided in Long Beach early Monday in a crash where speed is believed to be a factor, police said.

Officers who were on patrol located the crash scene about 1:40 a.m. in the area of Willard Street and Pacific Avenue that involved a 2017 Honda Civic and a 2015 Toyota Camry, the Long Beach Police Department said in a news release.

The preliminary investigation revealed a 44-year-old woman was driving the Honda Civic northbound on Pacific Avenue when she collided with the 2015 Toyota Camry, police said.

Video from the scene showed the two dark-colored cars, one that was severely mangled, and several items strewn across a street.

The female passenger in the Camry, who was described as being 25 to 30 years old, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the Camry, a 21-year old Long Beach woman, was taken to a local hospital where she died a short time later, police said.

The driver of the Honda and her 30-year-old male passenger were both hospitalized in critical but stable conditions.

The investigation to determine if drugs or alcohol were also a factor is ongoing.

Anyone who may have witnessed this collision is asked to contact LBPD Collision Investigation Detective Kevin Matter or Detective Shawn Loughlin at 562-570-7355.
