Five people were killed and three injured Wednesday in a two-car collision near Edwards Air Force Base, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

A Dodge carrying seven occupants was traveling west on Avenue E when the driver of the vehicle ran a stop sign and drove into the path of a BMW heading south on 120th Street East, authorities said. All the dead--one man, two women and two girls--were in the Dodge, CHP Officer Mike Nemback said.

A woman and a boy also riding in the Dodge were listed in critical condition at an area hospital. Clement King of Lancaster, the driver of the BMW, was listed in stable condition at another hospital with a fractured ankle. The identities of the Dodge's occupants were not immediately available.
