Eyewitnesses have come forward with photos showing large flames coming from the back of a limousine as it crossed the San Mateo Bridge late Saturday, killing 5 women.
NBC Bay Area published two photos Sunday showing the back of the limo engulfed in flames, with smoke coming from inside the vehicle. A California Highway Patrol spokesman told the station the "vehicle was partially engulfed" but could not confirm if there was any type of explosion inside the limo.
KTVU-TV obtained a similar photo of flames in the back of the white Lincoln Town Car.
Officials are trying to determine the cause of the fire.
A total of 10 people were inside the vehicle when the fire started, and five — including the driver — were able to escape.
Witnesses told the CHP of a horrific scene of people inside the limo not able to get out as the flames advanced, according to KGO-TV.
