At least one person was killed and two others were in critical condition on Saturday night. Erik Scott, a spokesman with the Los Angeles Fire Department reported that the vehicle crashed into a wall in Sun Valley.

It was around 8:21 in the evening when the firefighters responded to a report of a single-car crash in the 8300 block of La Tuna Canyon Road. One person died on the scene and was found dead inside the Lexus sedan; two others were seriously injured and were immediately transported to nearby local hospitals, Scott said.

Authorities are not able to give further details of the crash, the identities & ages of the victims as well as their genders as investigation is still ongoing.

Meanwhile investigators have their hands busy trying to determine what caused a one-car crash that led to the death of a motorist in Lincoln Heights.

The fatality was identified as 34-year-old man who is a resident of South Gate. He died resulting from the accident after his Acura sedan; for unknown reason, slammed into center divider on the southbound 5 Freeway near Elysian Park at about 9 o’clock that evening of Friday.

California Highway Patrol officers pulled out the man from his car and started CPR. He was immediately delivered to the Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center. But his injuries must have been so critical that he was pronounced dead a few minutes after reaching the hospital.

According to a statement from the CHP, which is investigating the case, alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the collision.
