LANCASTER (AP) — Authorities say four young people are dead and three critically injured after a car and a pickup truck collided on a rural desert road in northern Los Angeles County.

County fire spokesman Tony Akins tells KNBC-TV that firefighters in Lancaster Saturday night arrived to find the pickup and sedan in a ditch and four people already dead.

California Highway Patrol Sgt. Tom Lackey says one of the vehicles ran a stop sign and broadsided the other, sending both into the ditch. Lackey says at least two of the dead weren't wearing seatbelts.

Witnesses tell KCBS-TV the car that ran the stop sign was a Honda with five people inside.

Akins says the dead appeared to be in their teens or early 20s.

The victims' identities were not immediately released.
