RESEDA ( — Three young men in their early 20s were critically injured Monday after being ejected from a convertible Ford Mustang that crashed into several cars in Reseda at high speed, police said.

The crash took place on Vanowen Street, just west of Tampa Avenue, at about 1:30 a.m., Los Angeles police Sgt. Cameron Dunnet said.

“The Mustang hit at least two cars that were traveling, then slammed into a parked car, which then hit nine other parked cars,” Dunnet said.

All three men were thrown from the convertible and taken to a hospital in critical condition, Dunnet said.

“None of them were wearing their seat belts,” he said.

Witnesses told police the Mustang appeared to be going about 100 miles per hour when it crashed, Dunnet said.

“But we haven’t yet determined how fast it was really going,” he said. “That is still under investigation by detectives.”

Detectives are also investigating whether drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.

Anyone with information on the crash can call the LAPD’s Valley Traffic Division at (818) 644-8000.
