CASTAIC, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say three people, including two children, were killed when the sedan they were traveling in slammed into the back of a parked big rig on a Southern California freeway.

California Highway Patrol Officer Francisco Villalobos says the collision occurred around 1 a.m. Monday on Interstate 5 near Castaic.

The Honda crashed into the back of the tractor-trailer and wound up underneath it.

KABC-TV reports that an adult male driver and two children in the car were killed. Their ages were not immediately available.

Villalobos says the crash occurred in a brake-check area, so freeway traffic was not affected.

The incident is being investigated.
