Three robbery suspects were killed and a fourth hospitalized in critical condition Friday morning when the vehicle they were in rolled over and crashed at the end of a police pursuit in Echo Park.
The crash occurred about 4 a.m. on the Rampart Boulevard offramp off the northbound Hollywood (101) Freeway, according to Margaret Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
Firefighters worked to free the four suspects, all said to be between 20 and 30 years old, from the wreckage. Three of the suspects were pronounced dead at the scene and a fourth was taken to a hospital in critical condition, she said.
The suspects were wanted for robbery, but details of where the pursuit began and how long it lasted were not immediately available, the Los Angeles Police Department said.
There were no reports of any officers injured.
The California Highway Patrol requested a closure of the Rampart Boulevard on- and off-ramp until further notice.
