An accident early Saturday morning left one man dead and at least three other people hospitalized with injuries after a two-car collision in Downtown L.A.

The accident happened at 2:45 a.m. at the intersection of South Flower St. and West Pico Blvd., City News Service reported. LAPD said the male who died was a passenger in a red sedan that was t-boned by a silver Chevy.

Police believe alcohol was involved in the accident, KTLA reports. All occupants of both vehicles were hospitalized in unknown conditions and were described as women in their 20s or 30s, according to police.

The accident took place a half-block down from the Metro Pico station of the Blue Line, with vehicles left blocking the light rail line. A Metro operator said services on the Blue and Expo lines were affected, with passengers being transported by bus. Metro reported via Twitter at about 6:30 a.m. that the lines were back to normal.
