LA HABRA (CBSLA)  —  A crash involving two vehicles left at least one person dead and another injured Sunday evening in La Habra.

The crash occurred at West Lambert Road and South Idaho Street around 7 p.m .

LA County Fire said that two people had to be extricated out of their vehicles. That report was later discounted.

La Habra Police said a vehicle traveling eastbound on Lambert crashed into another vehicle traveling northbound on Idaho Street.

The deceased is described as a man in his 40s. His name was withheld pending notification of his next of kin.

The other injured driver was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Flying overhead in Sky9, Desmond Shaw described the scene as “one of the worst I’ve seen.”

The La Habra Police Department’s Traffic Unit is investigating the exact cause of the collision. They have not ruled out alcohol or drugs as potential causes of the crash.

The police are asking any witnesses to the crash to please come forward by calling (562) 383-4300. Once connected, please ask to speak to an investigator in the traffic unit.

    I just moved to LA Habra. I lived next to the five freeway for years. I’ve never heard such a terrible crash before. I don’t want to assume anything, but someone must have been going really fast.
