Two people killed in South L.A. by driver fleeing police, LAPD says

A driver who was reportedly fleeing police crashed into and killed a man and woman in south Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Officers responded to a report of domestic violence at the 4800 block of Figueroa Street around 11:30 a.m., said Tony Im, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department. They found no evidence of domestic violence and left, but were called back to the same location around 12:40 p.m

The suspect, described only as a man, fled in his vehicle, Im said, adding that officers searched the area but did not pursue the driver.

Police found the suspect’s vehicle, which had collided with a man and woman on West 52nd Place and South Flower Street, Im said.

The suspect was taken to hospital and his condition was not known as of Tuesday night, Im said. Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene.

Video of the crash site showed a sedan with severe front and windshield damage sitting next to what appeared to be a roadside camp with a destroyed canopy, and two bodies under white sheets nearby.

I could not provide any information about the residential status of the victims.

The suspect was taken to hospital and his condition was not known as of Tuesday night, Im said. Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene.

More information, including the names of the suspect and victims, the expected charges and whether disability was a factor in the crash, was not available Tuesday.
