A mother and daughter were killed Saturday in the Leimert Park neighborhood of Los Angeles after a traffic collision hurled a Volkswagen Beetle onto the corner where they were standing, police said.
The Volkswagen was traveling north on Crenshaw Boulevard around 3:30 p.m. when it collided with a southbound Chevrolet pickup attempting to turn left onto Coliseum Street, said LAPD Sgt. Cy Feliciano.
An 89-year-old woman was pronounced dead shortly after being taken to a nearby hospital. Her daughter, believed to be in her 60s, died that night.
Neither driver had visible injuries, Feliciano said. The pickup driver received a traffic citation for failing to yield.
