LOS ANGELES (AP) - A suspected drunk driver who police say caused a Los Angeles crash that left two people dead could face murder charges.

Police say 41-year-old Arsen Panasian crashed his Chevy Astro van into the side of a Toyota Camry late Saturday at an intersection in Arleta.

The force of the collision caused the Camry to spin off the road. The driver and the passenger died at the scene. Coroner’s officials say their names will be released pending notification of family.

Police say officers believe he was either drunk or on drugs.

City News Service says the Van Nuys resident was taken from the scene in an ambulance and arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder.

It wasn’t immediately known if he has a lawyer.
