Two young men were killed and at least one was injured when their car hurtled off a highway in El Segundo and crashed into parked cars at nearby LAX, according to authorities.

Around 3 a.m. Saturday, the driver of a 2016 Lexus sedan was traveling westbound on the I-105 and took the sharp Nash Street exit at high speed, the CHP said. The car hit a concrete barrier and wound up in the FedEx parking lot at LAX.

The Lexus struck a car and two pickup trucks before it stopped, the CHP said.

The 19-year-old driver and an 18-year-old passenger were pronounced dead at the scene. Another passenger, also 19, suffered cuts and was taken to UCLA’s Westwood Medical Center.

All three were from the Moreno Valley.

The crash remains under investigation. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the CHP at (310) 642-3939.
