Freeway crash in Eagle Rock

By City News Service

(CNS) – Two girls remained hospitalized Tuesday with injuries they suffered when an SUV with a possible blown tire crashed off the side of the Ventura (134) Freeway in Eagle Rock, killing four other people in the vehicle.

The girls, ages 6 and 15, were in the 1999 Ford Expedition that crashed over the side of the eastbound freeway near Figueroa Street about 7 p.m. Sunday and plunged onto the roadway below, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Killed were the driver, who was a woman about 40; and three passengers—a man in his 50s, a woman in her 30s, and a girl about 11, authorities said.

Their names have not yet been released.
