LAKE ELSINORE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say three people have been killed in a fiery two-car crash that shut down a highway in inland Southern California.

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the collision Friday afternoon on State Route 74 in Lake Elsinore.

Witnesses tell KABC-TV that one car caught fire, but firefighters were able to quickly douse the flames.

All three victims died at the scene about 70 miles (112 kilometers) east of Los Angeles.
