Two adults were killed and three were hospitalized in critical condition Monday morning after a car crashed into a barrier on the southbound Harbor (110) Freeway at the Glenn Anderson (105) Freeway in the Vermont Vista area of Los Angeles.
It was reported at 12:14 a.m., according to California Highway Patrol Officer Patrick Kimball.
The two deceased victims were described as a man and woman, both in their 20s, Kimball said.
Witnesses told the CHP a gray Nissan Altima was traveling at about 70 mph before it hit the attenuators that keep vehicles from crossing over to the wrong side of the road. Heavy fog was also reported in the area.
Three people were taken to trauma centers in critical condition, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department’s Nicholas Prange.
A SigAlert was issued at 12:33 a.m. for the southbound Harbor Freeway and both eastbound and westbound Glenn Anderson Freeway in the crash area. Caltrans was contacted to repair the attenuators. The roadways were reopened at 4:13 a.m.
