The pickup was reportedly traveling at a high rate of speed when it began to spin and then collided with a tree. Three passengers in the vehicle were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver survived but suffered third and fourth-degree burns.

Run-Off-Road Crashes in California
Leaving the roadway is the leading cause of roadway fatalities involving single-vehicle crashes. Statistics show that nearly 70 percent of single-vehicle accidents involve cars exiting the road, often striking a stationary object. The force of these crashes is magnified when drivers are speeding.
The aftermath of a serious collision can be devastating. When victims are injured or killed when riding in a vehicle that leaves the roadway, it’s possible for those involved to pursue lost compensation for their injuries. Sometimes, surviving family members of a crash victim can be eligible for compensation with the help of a qualified California car crash attorney.
