Around the nation: 5 women killed in limo fire
SAN FRANCISCO - A limousine taking nine women to a bachelorette party
erupted in flames, killing five of the passengers, including the
bride-to-be, authorities and the mother of one of the survivors said
The limo caught fire at around 10 p.m. Saturday on one of the busiest
bridges on San Francisco Bay, California Highway Patrol officer Art Montiel told Associated Press.
Five of the women were trapped, but the four other women managed to
get out after the vehicle came to a stop on the San Mateo-Hayward
Bridge, the patrol said.
Investigators haven't determined what sparked the fire, but the
patrol said the white stretch limo became engulfed in flames after smoke
started coming out of the rear of the vehicle.
