A 34-year-old Beverly Hills woman was killed when a speeding car hit her as she was trying to turn onto an intersection, and police said Sunday that two survivors from the other car fled in a third vehicle.
The crash was reported at about 10:30 p.m. Saturday at 120th Street at Harvard Boulevard, in the Athens section of unincorporated Los Angeles County, according to a California Highway Patrol crash report released Sunday.
The woman had started turning onto westbound 120th Street after stopping at a stop sign when a speeding 2016 Mercedes Benz with paper plates hit her 1997 Honda on the driver's side, the CHP said.
The crash sent both cars careening out of control, with the Honda coming to a stop at a two-way turn lane "just east of the collision," according to the CHP. For its part, the Mercedes crashed head-on into a wooden pole east of the intersection.
After the crash, the driver of the Mercedes and his passenger got out of their car and hopped into a white BMW sedan that arrived at the scene. The BMW fled eastbound on 120 Street, the CHP said.
The woman driving the Honda suffered "major internal trauma" and died at the scene.
The driver and passenger of the Mercedes are described only as black males.
