Two people suffered injuries after a high-speed crash Thursday morning in Watts. The incident also caused a power outage in the area.
As per the initial information, the traffic collision took place at about 2 a.m. near Compton Avenue and 111th Street. The preliminary reports showed that the driver was heading southbound at a high rate of speed before slamming into several parked cars and a power pole.
Due the impact, that pole came crashing down on a house, triggering a fire and power outage. It is unknown how many residents in the area were left without power and when it would be restored. The two people in the car were transported to the hospital with broken bones. The wreck did not reportedly cause any other injuries. No other details are available.
The crash remains under review.
