After hitting the off-ramp wall, the cars landed in an LAX parking lot for FedEx Air Freight employees, initial information indicates. One of them caught fire on impact, video from the scene shows.

Of the three victims, two were pronounced dead at the scene, LAPD confirmed, adding that they were both in the same vehicle.

It is not known if speed was a factor in the crash, but “it likely was” due to the off-ramp’s sharp curve, McGraw said.

Neither the two decedents nor the injured victim have been identified, and both CHP and LAX police are handling the investigation.
