On Sunday in Los Angeles, California, three people were left seriously injured and another was killed after being involved in a multi-vehicle accident.
The collision occurred at La Cienega Boulevard and Cashio Street around 11:30 p.m. Though more than one vehicle was involved, the injured parties were all pedestrians unfortunately caught up in the car crash.
According to investigators, a Ford Mustang was driving at high speeds on La Cienega and hit two other vehicles in its path. One of those struck vehicles was pushed over a curb and forced into the four pedestrians.
The driver of the Mustang who caused the accident attempted to flee on foot, but was caught and arrested by police shortly afterward.
One victim was pronounced dead on the scene and the three others were rushed to the local hospital. One has been reported to be in critical condition, while the other two are in serious conditions. The identities of the four victims have not been released at this time, but it is suspected the victim that was killed was a local transient.
