The crash occurred near the intersection of Hayvenhurst Avenue and Victory Boulevard around 8 p.m. Monday, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

Six people were inside one of the cars, an SUV that overturned, said LAPD Officer Rosario Herrera. Two officers were stopped at a red light when the collision occurred.
