Shortly before 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 29, 2014, two passengers were killed in a crash on the 60 Freeway near Beaumont, reported the Los Angeles Times. While traveling near Western Knolls Avenue, the black sedan in which the two people were riding veered from the roadway and collided with a tree. The driver sustained major trauma and was taken to an area hospital. Authorities are investigating the crash.
