UPDATE: 2 killed, 5 hurt in Lambert Road crash

LA MIRADA — Two women died and three people suffered serious injuries when a Honda Accord carrying seven people crashed into a power pole and a tree, authorities said.
The names of the dead women were not released pending notification of their family members, Los Angeles County Coroner’s officials said.
California Highway Patrol officials described them as a 21-year-old woman, the driver, and a 20 year old woman. Both were from Whittier.
The car was heading west on Lambert Road, just east of Fireside Drive, about 3:50 a.m. when the crash occurred, CHP officials said in a written statement.
“For undetermined reasons, (the Honda) veered to the right, colliding with a wooden power pole, then continued in a westerly direction, colliding into a tree,” the statement said.
The 21-year-old driver and 20-year-old passenger were taken to hospitals where they died from their injuries, authorities said.
A 20-year-old Cerritos man and an 18-year-old La Puente man were hospitalized in critical condition following the crash, officials said, and a 23-year-old La Habra man was hospitalized with injuries including cuts to his head and broken bones in his back.
A 19-year-old Bellflower woman and a 20-year-old Cerritos woman riding in the car were hospitalized with apparently minor injuries, according to the CHP.
The cause of the crash was being investigated by the Santa Fe Springs office of the CHP.
