FONTANA (CBS) — Four teens have been killed in a solo vehicle crash in Fontana, according to authorities.

The crash occurred early Sunday morning at the historic train trestle crossing at Foothill Boulevard and Lime Avenue.

An investigation showed the driver, going eastbound on Foothill, lost control of his vehicle while speeding. The crash was reported at 1:08 Sunday morning.

The car, a Chrysler Sebring, crashed into a train trestle and burst into flames.

The male driver and a female passenger were pronounced dead at the scene.

Two passengers, one male and one female, were transported to area hospitals. The male died at Kaiser about an hour after the crash. The female was taken to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center where she died at approximately 5:45 a.m.

They were identified late Sunday after all their families were notified. The driver was Javier T. Contreras, 18. The female passenger who died at the scene was 16-year-old Rebeca Garcia.

The male passenger who died at the hospital was identified as Pedro Rivera, 18. The female who died at Arrowhead Regional was identified as 18-year-old Raquel Garcia.

All of the deceased were from Fontana.

It is unclear if the two Garcia women were related.

Raquel Garcia, Rivera and Contreras were all graduates of A.B. Miller High School class of 2011, according to their facebook profiles. Rebeca Garcia still attended the high school.

Raquel Garcia’s profile also says she was a student at CSU San Bernardino, class of 2015.
