AUBURN, Wash. (AP) - Four people were killed in a single-vehicle crash south of Seattle.

Auburn Police say a vehicle left the roadway early Saturday and struck a power pole.

Auburn Police Commander Steve Stocker told The News Tribune ( https://tinyurl.com/o6thsoq ) that two females and two males were found dead at the scene. Two other occupants, men in their 30s, were seriously injured and transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. The driver survived. Stocker says the two females who were killed were in their 20s, while one of the men who died was in his 20s and the other was in his 30s.

Police say alcohol and speed may have been a factor in the crash.

Stocker says a small dog was also apparently in the vehicle. It was found alive at the scene, but was later euthanized due to injuries.

Auburn is about 30 miles south of Seattle.
