Torrance crash leaves 18-year-old in critical condition

An 18-year-old Rancho Palos Verdes man who was in a car crash in Torrance on Sunday is in critical condition at a nearby hospital this morning.

The man crashed his 2006 Ford Mustang into a 2008 Volkswagon Golf near Skypark Drive and Garnier Street at about 3:14 p.m., said Torrance police Lt. John Megeff.

Someone involved in the collision may have been under the influence of alcohol, police said.

The driver of the Volkswagon was not injured, and a passenger in the Mustang was taken to Torrance Memorial Hospital with minor injuries.

The driver of the Mustang, whose name was not immediately released, was taken to Harbor UCLA Medical Center in critical condition, Megeff said.
