2/17: A woman was killed and a teenager was hospitalized in a West Los Angeles car crash Wednesday, an LAFD spokesman said.
Witnesses called 911 about a two-car collision in the area of West Olympic Blvd. and Overland around 5:15 p.m., the Los Angeles Fire Department said in an incident alert.
A woman driving one of the vehicles was trapped in the wreckage and was deemed "beyond medical help," according to the department. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the other vehicle was a teenage boy, who was taken to an area hospital with moderate injuries.
A third vehicle was stopped near the scene of the crash but was not involved in the collision, the department said.
Aerial video showed two damaged vehicles, one of them appearing to be completely crushed.
Olympic was closed for 2 blocks in each direction for several hours, while the LAPD investigated the fatality collision.
