4 killed in fiery crash on 110 Freeway in South LA

Authorities said four people were killed in a horrific single-vehicle crash on the 110 Freeway in South Los Angeles late Thursday night. 

Officials with the California Highway Patrol said the crash happened just after 11:40 p.m. on the southbound lanes of the freeway at the Slauson Avenue exit.

CHP investigators said the driver of the four-door sedan was speeding when they lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle then slid off the side of the freeway and slammed into a wall just feet away from the Slauson Ave. on-ramp. The vehicle erupted in flames and the driver and three passengers became trapped inside. 

There were no survivors of the fiery crash, the CHP said.
