Two people died Monday in a crash in Pomona when a woman driving an allegedly stolen car smashed into another vehicle, police say.

The collision occurred shortly before 1:45 a.m. on Holt Avenue when the driver of the 2008 Infiniti slammed into a Nissan Maxima as it was making a left turn, killing the two people inside, the Pomona Police Department said in a statement.

The Nissan was ripped apart and burst into flames when it rammed into a light pole, police said.  The victims were not identified.

Police said the driver of the Nissan, Lorraine Martinez, 26, was unlicensed and sustained minor injuries. She was arrested on suspicion of auto theft.
