LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A woman passenger was killed Monday morning and the man driving the car was critically injured when it hit a wall and overturned near the intersection of Broadway and Century Boulevard.

The single-vehicle accident was at 1:41 a.m., Los Angeles police Sgt. Ruben Vega said.

Two men and two women were pinned inside the car, and firefighters had to extricate them, Vega said. One woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver was transported to Harbor UCLA Medical Center, where he was in critical condition. The other two passengers were not seriously hurt.

Vega said it is believed the driver was under the influence of alcohol, and charges would be filed.
