San Mateo: Authorities say five people were killed and five others survived after a limousine caught fire on a San Francisco Bay area bridge.
California Highway Patrol Officer Amelia Jack tells KGO-TV that five victims who were trapped in the burning limousine died late yesterday night. Five others escaped.
KGO reports that the victims were all women in their 30s. They were traveling on the San Mateo bridge when smoke came from in the back of the limousine. The driver pulled over and the vehicle quickly became engulfed in flames.
