One person was killed and another was severely injured in a five-car wreck in Torrance that police said was a hit-and-run crash Tuesday.
The hit-and-run crash, which occurred at 10:28 a.m., shut down northbound lanes on Hawthorne Boulevard at Del Amo Boulevard, Torrance police said.
Officers were redirecting traffic from the area and asking drivers to avoid traveling down that street.
The heavily-traveled boulevard would remain closed for hours.
Five cars collided on the street, overturning one and totaling at least three cars.
Torrance police said two people suspected of taking off after the crash were in custody.
