IRVINE, Calif. (KABC) —

A woman is dead and four others injured, including two young children, in a three-car crash in Irvine. Police were searching for the driver of a black Mustang who fled the scene.

The crash was reported shortly before 9 p.m. Wednesday at Alton and Barranca parkways.

A white Chevy Cruze involved in the crash had four people on board – two adult women and two children, ages 3 and 6. The 54-year-old driver was killed and pronounced dead at the scene. The second woman and both children were transported to area hospitals in serious condition after being extricated form the vehicle.

Another car tangled in the wreck was a black Honda Civic. The 30-year-old female driver of that car was also transported to an area hospital for injuries, but she has since been released.

The third car in the wreck was a black, newer model Ford Mustang with red rims. The driver, described by authorities as ab adult male, likely Caucasian, fled the scene on foot. It was unclear if he caused the crash.

Police said the suspect may have been wearing a dark jacket at the time of the crash, but it appears he took it off as he fled.

Irvine police with the help of K-9 units and helicopter assistance from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department were searching for the man.

If you have any information about this incident, you’re urged to contact Irvine police.

Roads surrounding the crash site were expected to remain closed through Thursday morning for investigation.
