At least two people were killed and another person suffered major injuries in a single vehicle crash in the pre-dawn darkness Sunday in an unincorporated Riverside County area north of Indio, authorities said.

The crash was reported at 5:17 a.m. at Dillon and Berdoo Canyon roads, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Firefighters were able to extricate a trapped person inside the vehicle, who suffered major injuries, the Riverside County Fire Department reported.

There was no immediate word of a cause of the deadly crash nor the identities of the victims. It wasn’t clear if the person who had been trapped in the death vehicle was one of the two victims who then died.

No further details were available.
