A stalled subcompact car burst into flames, killing two people and seriously injuring a third, when it was struck by a big-rig truck on the Santa Ana Freeway this morning, officials said.

The 19-year-old driver and an 18-year-old passenger in the Honda Civic were burned to death in the collision on the northbound Santa Ana Freeway north of Downey Road in East Los Angeles, California Highway Patrol Officer Lujuanna Lopez said. A 19-year-old passenger was in serious condition at County-USC Medical Center with severe burns. The car carrying the three victims, whose identities were not immediately released, stalled about 2:55 a.m. in the far left lane of the freeway, Lopez said.
