2 Dead, 3 Hurt In Head-On Wreck Near Lake Los Angeles

LAKE LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) –Two people were killed and three others – including two children — were injured in a head-on collision Saturday night on State Route 138 in the town of Llano, south of the Lake Los Angeles area.

The crash occurred at 6:50 p.m. on SR-138 at 175th Street, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

California Highway Patrol reports that a Chevrolet Camaro speeding west on SR-138 lost control and veered into oncoming traffic, slamming head-on into a Ford Fusion carrying four people. The Camaro was split in half.

The driver of the Camaro and a female passenger in the Fusion were pronounced dead at the scene. A man and two children in the Fusion were airlifted to nearby hospitals with serious injuries, CHP said. The children were between four and 10 years of age. No names were released.

A Chrysler PT Cruiser was also caught up in the chain-reaction crash. Its driver was not hurt.

SR-138 was shut down in both directions  for several hours and a Sig Alert was issued. One westbound lane was reopened just after 10:30 p.m., but all eastbound lanes were expected to remain closed through midnight, CHP said.

The investigation into the cause of the crash is ongoing.
