One man was killed and two others were injured in a head-on collision in South Los Angeles early Sunday, police said.
The accident occurred just after 2 a.m. when a motorist going west on Manchester Avenue attempted to make a left turn onto Figueroa Street and struck a vehicle going east on Manchester.

The driver of the eastbound vehicle was taken to California Hospital Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. His male passenger suffered serious injuries but was expected to live, said Los Angeles police Sgt. Cy Feliciano.

The driver who made the left turn was hospitalized with less serious injuries, Feliciano said.

Police did not release the names of the victims but said drugs and alcohol were not involved. No one was cited or arrested, Feliciano said.
