LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities say two women were killed and six people injured, all but one from electric shock, when an SUV knocked over a fire hydrant and power pole in Los Angeles and live wires hit water.
Los Angeles fire spokesman Erik Scott said all the victims were shocked except the driver after the Wednesday night crash in the San Fernando Valley. It was not clear whether the driver, who was alone in the SUV, was one of the dead.
The other injured were apparently people who tried to help previous victims as the SUV sat on the front lawn of a home.
The six survivors had minor injuries. Five were taken to hospitals.
Firefighters worked to treat the injured and shut down the water and power with help from city workers.
