Two Women Killed in 110 Freeway Crash

By City News Service

Two women died and three other women were seriously injured when a car hit a chain-link fence and a tree on the Pasadena (110) Freeway early Sunday morning, officials said.

Five women were in the 2011 Nissan Sentra that crashed while on the northbound Pasadena Freeway at Avenue 52 at about 1:30 a.m., said Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Katherine Main.

Firefighters performed a physical rescue to remove the women from the car, and three were transported to hospitals, Main said.

Two passengers, a 22-year-old Ana Cuadra and a 23-year-old Blanca Belman, died at the scene.

The driver, a 23-year-old San Gabriel woman, was transported to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center in serious condition, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Paramedics also rushed two 23-year-old women to Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena in serious condition, according to the CHP.

The CHP issued a SigAlert closing the northbound freeway at Avenue 43 for the rescue and investigation, said Officer Alex Rubio in the Traffic Management Center.

The freeway reopened shortly after 5:30 a.m.
