Two people were killed and three others critically injured Wednesday morning in a two-vehicle head-on crash in Lake View Terrace.
There was no immediate word of why one of the vehicles may have been on the wrong side of the road.
Firefighters responded about 12:25 a.m. to the 11200 block of North Wheatland Avenue, near Foothill Boulevard, according to Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
Two patients were pronounced dead at the scene and three others were taken to a hospital in critical condition, Humphrey said.
Other details of what led to the crash were not immediately available.
