The two-vehicle crash happened around 7:15 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 11th at the Seal Beach intersection, the Long Beach Post reports.

A total of three 17-year-old girls and two women in their 20s were injured in the crash.

Meanwhile, police were searching for the suspect in a gold 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300 who fled the scene.
