Two adults and two teens were killed after a car blew through a stop sign and broadsided a truck on a rural road in Lancaster.

The crash happened around 6:30 p.m. last night at 10th Street East and Avenue G. A Honda Civic ran a stop sign and broadsided a Toyota Tacoma pickup truck, according to City News Service. The crash sent both vehicles into a nearby ditch, KTLA reported.

The Honda's driver Marissa Fritz, 22, of La Mirada was pronounced dead at the scene along with her fellow passengers Brianna Heyrend, 17 and Roland Mohan, 17. Arturo Delatorre, 49, was also pronounced dead, but it's not clear which car he was in.

The driver of the Toyota Erazmo Arroyoayala, 34, of Lancaster suffered major injuries, as did Adrian Ruiz, 20, of La Mirada and Steven Heyrend, 19, who were in the Honda.
