COMPTON, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a 30-year-old woman was among four people killed in Compton after a car fleeing from deputies rammed another vehicle, flipped and burst into flames.

The Los Angeles County coroner says Stacey Garcia of Los Angeles died in Saturday's crash. It was unclear which vehicle she was inside.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Sgt. Peter Ramirez tells the Los Angeles Times that dental records and fingerprints may be needed to identify the other three.

Keith Wright tells the Times that his brother — 35-year-old auto mechanic Larry Gilmore — died.

George Starks says his granddaughter — 20-year-old Shawnice Osborne — also died. She recently graduated from Compton High School.

Two others were killed in Palmdale Saturday when a sheriff's patrol car collided with a vehicle at an intersection.
