LOS ANGELES – Three Lancaster residents were killed and four were injured early Saturday morning when the minivan they were riding in hit a concrete wall and rolled over on a connector road between the 110 and 5 freeways.
Abigail Estrella, 37, Abigail Romero, 19, and Katie Davila, 12, were thrown from the minivan and pronounced dead at the scene of the single-vehicle crash, which was reported around 12:15 a.m. on the northbound 110 Freeway connector to the 5 Freeway, authorities said.
“Initial information obtained at the scene indicated the vehicle veered to the right off of the roadway, for an undetermined reason, and collided with a raised concrete wall.
This action caused the vehicle to overturn and skid on its right side until coming to rest in the No. 2 lane,” California Highway Patrol Officer C. Stanhope stated in a CHP report.
Two men, a boy and a girl – all from Lancaster – were also injured in the collision.
A four-year-old girl received moderate injuries, while a 13-year-old boy, a 36-year-old man, and the 55-year-old driver sustained minor injuries, the CHP report stated.
The injured were transported to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center for treatment.
The cause of the collision is still under investigation.
