6 Killed, Including Baby, in Fiery LA Crash

At least six people — including a pregnant woman and a baby — were killed when a speeding driver flew through a red light at a Los Angeles intersection Thursday, plowing into other cars and instantly engulfing three in flames.

Surveillance video of the horrific crash obtained by RMG News shows a Mercedes-Benz sedan speeding through a steady red light at the intersection of La Brea and Slauson Avenues with no signs of stopping before it slams into through traffic at around 1:40 p.m.

The impact of the collision shot car parts into the air and immediately set some of the six cars involved on fire.

An official with the California Highway Patrol said the Mercedes driver was traveling at a “high rate of speed” at the time of the collision.

The six dead include three adults, one infant, and an unborn child, according to CHP.
