A tragic accident late Monday afternoon claimed the lives of two men and a woman when a car they were in smashed into a tree and overturned late Monday afternoon in Venice. A fourth person was critically injured.

The crash was reported about 4:55 p.m. at 171 Via Marina Court, according to Erik Scott of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Three patients, a man and woman believed to be 20-25 years old and another man believed to be 18 to 25, were pronounced dead at the scene and another person was taken to a trauma center, according to Officer Alex Rubio of the California Highway Patrol, which was investigating the crash.
