The three women — two of them sisters — were among four passengers in a Honda rideshare vehicle traveling westbound on West Century Boulevard, CBS News reports. That’s when a second motorist allegedly drove through a red light and T-boned their car at a high rate of speed, the Los Angeles Police Department said. The Mercedes reportedly spun out of control and landed on the center median.

One of the passengers from the Honda was ejected and died at the scene with the two other women.

Juvelyn Arroyo, 23, Veronica Amezola, 23, and Kimberly Izquierdo, 27, were all killed in the collision. The 38-year-old woman driving the Uber rideshare vehicle and a fourth passenger, along with Gregory Black, were badly injured and transported to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance.
