LOS ANGELES (AP) - Police say a driver was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after a fiery crash in Los Angeles that killed three people and left three others critically injured.

The Los Angeles Fire Department says an adult, child and infant were killed in Friday night's crash in South Los Angeles. Three other people, including another child, were critically injured.

Witnesses told KABC-TV they saw a man crash into a van that was carrying five people.

The fiery crash was caught on cell phone video, which showed both vehicles engulfed in flames as firefighters rushed to extinguish the blaze.

Police said the driver of the car, who was among those injured, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Authorities did not immediately provide any additional information.
