A car crash in South LA has left one person in critical condition and three others in minor condition, including two Los Angeles Police Department officers. Around 9:45 p.m. at Western and 39th Street in the King Estates neighborhood (just south of Jefferson Park), at least three cars were involved in the accident, according to the L.A. Fire Department. The conditions of the crash are not immediately known but KTLA-TV reports that the police cruiser and a SUV crashed head on. Firefighters had to free the SUV driver with jaws of life. UPDATE: ABC7-TV reports that four vehicles were involved. Two vehicles crashed into a fire hydrant and another spun out.
