One person was killed Wednesday in a two-vehicle crash in the Winnetka area that left two other people injured, one critically.

The accident was reported at about 9:15 a.m. in the 20100 block of West Parthenia Street, said Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Two people were trapped in one vehicle, which overturned, Humphrey said. The driver, a 17-year-old boy, was pronounced dead at the scene, and his passenger, man about 20 years old, was taken to a hospital in critical condition, Humphrey said.

"The third patient, from the other vehicle, was an approximately 40-year-old female found curbside with minor injuries," Humphrey said. "She has declined ambulance transportation."
