Murrieta police were called to Alta Murrieta Elementary School on Whitewood Road just after 11 p.m. Saturday, for reports of a single-car crash. When officers got to the scene minutes later, they found a car completely engulfed in flames.
Police found one man outside the car, who'd suffered severe injuries. He was brought to the hospital while crews worked to put out the car fire. When they did, they found three more people inside the car. All three of them were pronounced dead at the scene.
None of the victims of the crash have yet been identified. The Murrieta Police Department is still investigating what led to the crash, but said it doesn't appear as if any other vehicles were involved in the crash.
