HYDE PARK (CBS) —  One woman is dead and five others critically injured after an SUV crashed into a tree on Florence Avenue Friday morning.

The LAPD says the women were riding in an Infiniti SUV when it lost control, hit a curb and slammed into a tree at 2:45 a.m.

The woman riding in the front passenger seat remained in the car, but the five others were ejected.

Some ended up dozens of feet away from the car at the intersection of Hilldale and Florence.

Investigators say they found empty bottles in and around the vehicle, which was purchased recently in Moreno Valley.

The women, who were all wearing club attire, were taken to California and Harbor General hospitals.

Officials say speed and alcohol could be factors in the crash.

    Love the 30 second commercial followed by literally 3 seconds of an actual news report. Brilliant!

  2. Delores G. Wright says:

    I agree, who the heck cares about a commercial out here? CBS you can do better, this is not good.

    Thank God these idiots only injured themselves and no incent people; I’m willing to bet these morons don’t have any medical insurance.

    1. Tre in Inglewood says:

      Another IDIOT; what difference does it make if they have medical or life insurance? Do YOU have any? Are you gonna have to pay for ANY of their expenses? The point is; speeding, drinking and driving will most likely have a BAD outcome. It’s a DEADLY coalition.

    2. Sunny says:

      Ignorance! What the hell does them having medical insurance have to do with anything? 5 – 6 families are hurting right now and they best thing you can do is keep them in prayer or shut up! Let God judge the rest.

      They actually spelled it the right way!

  5. Astonished says:

    Channel 2 showed the paramedics putting a sheet over one body. . . I wonder if the actual count is 7 women, not 6.

    This car hit a palm tree. You have to be really flying to take out a large palm tree!

    I bet one of them was about to leave her man, was out with the girls for that, let’s get you laid by the first man we come accross because all will be better, was talking smack about men and KARMA made them meet a tree a dude planted.

  8. Mike in San Diego says:

    Who the hells goes out and is still out at 3.00 a.m. on a Thursday night? Umm, something tells me they are are probably singe mothers. Any bets?

    1. Tre in Inglewood says:

      YOU’RE AN IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!!!! What difference does it make if they are/were single mothers, why they were out, or what time it was?! They are NO LONGER HERE with their familes, FOOL!!!!! Apparently you don’t have a life that’s why the time amazes you,nor do you have a woman thats’s why you have a problem with why they may have been out. It’s an unfortunate situation all around. Maybe you should use some of your NEGATIVE energy for lawmakers, who are trying to accomodate immigrants; if they had impounded her car, this may not have happened. STOOOOPID!! And NO< I don't know any of them. LOOOOSER!!!!!

  9. Astonished says:

    I’m thinking like maybe someone in that car just turned 21 and they were “celebrating”!!!!!! I mean isn’t that what they do now days, get falling down drunk while clubbing and driving around for that day?

  10. Derrick says:

    They came all the way down here from Mo Valley to party, hell they didn’t even make it to the freeway. Alcohol and no one using there seat belts, no smart. Really a damn shame, their lives are changed forever now.

    1. tiffanie32 says:

    I don’t care what the posted speed limit is as most of us go at least 50mph or better on surface streets so what do you expect
