Two people were killed on Saturday morning after a two-vehicle crash in South Los Angeles.
The crash took place after their vehicle struck a pole on a South Los Angeles freeway when two vehicles that were traveling in the same group were moving east on the freeway. One of the vehicles clipped the back of the other, sending it off the roadway before crashing into a pole.
The vehicle is believed by officials to have been traveling in a group of illegal street racers when it crashed.
Both the driver of the vehicle and his passenger died.
The two-vehicle was reported around 12:40 a.m.
The suspect vehicle believed to have caused the crash fled the scene.
The 91 Freeway was closed around 2:45 a.m. but was reopened one hour later.
California Highway Patrol is investigating the crash and has urged anyone with information to contact them at 424-551-4000.
