LEIMERT PARK (AP) — A car crash Saturday afternoon in the Leimert Park area of Los Angeles resulted in the deaths of two pedestrians, an 89-year-old mother and her daughter, believed to be in her 60s.

Sgt. Cy Feliciano says the women were killed when a pickup truck collided with a Volkswagen Beetle, and the car careened into them at the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and Coliseum Street.

After being taken to an area hospital, the 89-year-old woman died immediately and her daughter died later in the evening.

The two drivers suffered minor injuries. No arrests or citations have been made. An investigation is underway.
