Firefighters worked for two hours early Sunday to extricate the bodies of two people who were killed when their vehicle veered off a road at high speed, flew through the air and then crashed into a house in Yorba Linda.
Two adults and a child in the home were hospitalized with minor injuries.
The Orange County Fire Authority responded to the crash shortly before midnight Saturday in the 5600 block of Lakeview Avenue in Yorba Linda.
Authorities said the vehicle had veered off the road at high speed and up a berm, going airborne before landing sideways into the home.
Both occupants of the vehicle were pronounced dead by paramedics. Firefighters worked for nearly two hours to free the bodies from the wreckage.
All lanes of Lakeview Avenue between Via Arboleda and Buena Vista were closed.
There were no further details about the cause of the crash, nor the identities of the people in the vehicle or in the house. It wasn’t known if alcohol or drugs may have been involved.
