A man and a woman were killed in La Mirada Saturday when a speeding car slammed into a pole, fire hydrant and other stationary objects at an intersection.
The crash was reported at 7:53 a.m. at Rosecrans Avenue and Beach Boulevard, according to Sgt. J. Marquez of the Norwalk Sheriff’s Station.
Witnesses told deputies the vehicle was moving at a high rate of speed when it crashed and “almost disintegrated,” Marquez said.
The two people inside the vehicle were pronounced dead at the scene, their names withheld pending notification of relatives.
Broadcast reports from the scene indicate they may have been father and daughter.
