Five women die in limo fire in California

HAYWARD, Calif. — Five women, including a new bride, died in a limo accident on a bridge in California Saturday night just outside of San Francisco.

Nine women were in the limo for a bachelorette party when it caught fire on the bridge.

Witnesses on the scene say they saw people trapped inside the burning limo but couldn't do anything to get them out. 

Investigators think the fire may have started in the back of the car and quickly spread to the rest of the vehicle.

The other four women escaped and are being treated at area hospitals.
