Three women killed in 110 Freeway crash

Three women – including a 12-year-old girl – were killed and four other people were injured last night after their van rolled over in the interchange of the 110 and 5 freeways north of Elysian Park, according to City News and LoudLabs News.

Four passengers from the white GMC van were thrown out of the vehicle after  the vehicle struck a concrete barrier  at about midnight on a connector road from the northbound 110 to the northbound 5 freeway.  The three female victims, all residents from Lancaster, were among those ejected from the van, according to a City News Report and LoundLabs News.


  1. that’s the most dangerous interchange in l.a.

  2. My heart goes out to the injured and to the families of the the women who were killed. How were they ejected from the car? Were they wearing seat belts? So so awful and sad.

  3. So very sad. We drive this interchange all the time, people need to slow down and be careful! Some people like to make the change at the last minute and risk injury to themselves and/or others. Not fair. Not worth dying or killing someone just so you can make the interchange. Get in line like everyone else.

    My heart goes out to these people involved and to everyone touched by this tragedy. Peace.

  4. people drive waaaay too fast on that stetch (well everywhere but…) and YES everybody needs to slow it down for the holidays. please! drive safely

    -preaching to the choir, i know …

  5. People are getting killed every week on this short stretch of road, can we look at this again with the city? Are there any other steps that can be taken with the Pasadena Freeway to make it safer? It’s appalling to see this keep happening over and over again, it’s not safe, and it must be made safe.

  6. It is a terrible stretch of road that I prefer to avoid

  7. Even as population increases, the US auto fatality rate continues to drop. Cars are getting safer and safer, with new vehicles requiring airbags, anti-lock brakes and vehicle stability control as well as crumple zones to pass the NHTSA crash tests.

    But the one thing we can’t safety away is wearing your damn seat belt. Idiots.

  8. A terrible reminder that seat belts save lives. So many people die after being ejected from vehicles in crashes like this. I’d love to see fewer grieving families.
