A woman and three children were critically injured Monday in a two-vehicle crash in the South Los Angeles area.
Paramedics were sent to the 100 block of East 111th Place shortly before 8 a.m., the Los Angeles Fire Department reported.
A woman in her 30s was injured, along with three children: a 16-year-old, a 13-year-old, and an 18-month-old, said Margaret Stewart of the LAFD. All of them were taken to hospitals.
“All are in at least critical condition, with at least one of the pediatric patients in grave condition,” Stewart said in a statement. “The vehicles made contact with a building, which has no structural integrity issues.”
The circumstances of the crash were under investigation. Police were seeking a man described as a “suspect,” who ran from the scene.
