Authorities identified 48-year-old Christian Mendoza, Gabriel Stauring, and 40-year-old Katie-Jay Scott as the three victims who were killed while three others, including a child, received injuries following a wreck in Manhattan Beach on Tuesday night.

As per the initial information, the four-vehicle pile-up took place at around 9:45 p.m. at Sepulveda Boulevard and Marine Avenue. The preliminary reports showed that a vehicle was traveling at a very high rate of speed when it broadsided another vehicle, resulting in a chain reaction with the other vehicles involved.

Two men and a woman succumbed to their injuries at the scene. Officials identified them as 48-year-old Christian Mendoza, and a married couple, Gabriel Stauring and 40-year-old Katie-Jay Scott from Redondo Beach. Stauring and Scott managed an international aid group called iAct. Through their organization, the couple used to travel to some of the most dangerous parts of the globe to help refugees in need.

Three other people, including two adults and a child, were immediately taken to local hospitals. One of those patients was listed in critical condition and two were in serious condition. They are all expected to survive. Eyewitnesses reported to police that one of the involved cars may have driven through a red light. Officials said that they have a couple of witnesses, including some of the survivors involved. No other details are available.

The wreck remains under investigation.
