Two Killed by Wrong-Way Driver in Lakewood

Two people were killed Tuesday night after a wrong-way driver plowed into another car in Lakewood, authorities said.

The crash occurred about 9:30 p.m. near Paramount and Del Amo boulevards, according to Sgt. James Jobling of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

According to the preliminary investigation, a person driving the wrong way smashed head-on into another car; the two people in that vehicle were fatally injured, Jobling said.

Both were pronounced dead at the scene. Their identities were not released pending notification of family.

Information on injuries to the wrong-way driver was not immediately available, and sheriff’s investigators were looking into whether the driver was under the influence of alcohol or another substance, Jobling said.
