LOS ANGELES (AP) — Six women are hospitalized in critical condition after their car slammed into a tree in South Los Angeles, ejecting five of them and leaving another trapped in the wreckage.

Investigators say alcohol may be a factor in the 2:47 a.m. Friday crash on Florence Avenue. No other vehicles were involved.

Police Sgt. Norma Vargas says an open container of alcohol was found in the car.

Fire Department spokesman Matt Spence tells City News Service that five women in the car were thrown from the vehicle and firefighters had to pry a front seat passenger from the demolished car.

Spence says all the women were taken to hospitals in critical condition.
