Bride killed limo fire, A bride-to-be was among five women who died when a limousine eruped in flames as it carried her and eight of her friends to her bachelorette party.
Five of the women were trapped, but the four other women managed to get out after the vehicle came to a stop on the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge.
Rosita Guardiano, whose daughter survived, told the San Francisco Chronicle that the bride-to-be was due to be married next month.
Investigators have not determined what sparked the fire, but the patrol said the white stretch limo became engulfed in flames after smoke started coming out of the rear of the vehicle.
A photo taken by a witness and broadcast on KTVU-TV showed flames shooting from the back.
Aerial video shot after the incident showed about one-third of the back half of the limousine had been scorched by the fire.
The driver of the limo - 46-year-old Orville Brown of San Jose - was the only person to escape unhurt.
"Four people got out, as far as what was going on inside, I don’t know," California Highway Patrol officer Jeremy Lofstrom said.
Investigators are still seeking witnesses to the incident.
All five women were pronounced dead at the scene.
Mrs Guardiano said her daughter - 42-year-old Mary Grace Guardiano of Alameda - was being treated for smoke inhalation.
The three other women who escaped the fire, Jasmine Desguia, 34, of San Jose; Nelia Arrellano, 36, of Oakland; and Amalia Loyola, 48, of San Leandro, were taken to hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation and burns.
