Two people were killed and two others injured Thursday morning in a two-vehicle crash on the westbound Santa Monica (10) Freeway near the La Brea Avenue exit in the Mid-City area of Los Angeles.

Paramedics responded about 4:20 a.m. and located four patients, two of whom were pronounced dead at the scene, according to Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department. The ages and genders of those killed were not disclosed.

The California Highway Patrol said at least one victim was trapped under a vehicle.

A 46-year-old man was taken to a hospital with unknown injuries and a fourth patient suffered a minor injury, but declined to be taken to a hospital and remained at the scene, Humphrey said.

The cause of the crash was under investigation.

A SigAlert was issued for the Nos. 2, 3 & 4 lanes of the westbound Santa Monica Freeway just east of Hauser Boulevard, and the Washington Boulevard exit will be blocked for an unknown duration, the CHP said.
