LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) — California police say a pregnant woman and her unborn child were killed in a weekend road rage incident that ended in a three-car crash south of Los Angeles.

A 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of charges including gross vehicular manslaughter following the collision Sunday in Long Beach. The suspect and a 10-year-old boy riding with him in a pickup truck suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say the pickup's driver had been in a road rage conflict with the driver of another vehicle before the pickup crashed into the car driven by the 23-year-old pregnant woman.
