Police are investigating an incident in which twin sisters were fatally struck early Sunday by a vehicle as they were brawling in the middle of Leimert Boulevard near Leimert Park.

The women apparently had been fighting with each other about 3 a.m. Sunday when their altercation moved into the roadway in the 4200 block of Leimert Boulevard, LAPD spokeswoman Norma Eisenman said.

Witnesses said a vehicle struck the women as they tussled, killing both of them. The identities of the women or the driver were not immediately available. Eisenman said the women were about 30 and lived in the area.

Eisenman said the department would release more information on the incident Monday. Police are asking potential witnesses to call with information.
