At least seven people were injured in a multi-car crash near the L.A. Coliseum on Saturday night.
Preliminary reports from authorities indicated that the crash, which involved six vehicles, occurred just before 8:45 p.m. near the intersection of Vermont Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in the Vermont Square neighborhood of Los Angeles.
Officers were attempting to stop a reckless driver when the collision occurred, LAPD officials told KTLA on Sunday afternoon.
Five victims were rushed to a nearby hospital in serious condition. The other two victims suffered minor injuries.
Witnesses say that they heard police sirens right before one of the vehicles careened onto the wrong side of the road, but it is unknown if any of the cars involved in the collision was involved in a pursuit.
