LOS ANGELES — Authorities say a speeding car that may have been street racing has crashed in Los Angeles, killing all four people inside.

Police say the silver BMW may have been doing up to 100 mph when the driver lost control and the car smashed into a tree and caught fire.

Two men and two women in their late teens or early 20s died.

Authorities say a second car was seen before the Friday night crash. Investigators are trying to determine whether the BMW was racing it before the crash.
