Los Angeles, C.A. -- Authorities say four people died in Compton after a car fleeing from deputies rammed another vehicle, flipped and burst into flames.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Sgt. Peter Ramirez says deputies early Saturday pulled over a car with three male suspects. An earlier report had described a similar vehicle from which shots had been fired.

Ramirez tells the Los Angeles Times that the car sped off as deputies approached.

After a high-speed chase, the driver ran a red light, hit another car and then struck a wall. The car landed upside down in the front yard of a home.

The three male occupants and the driver of the second car, a woman in her 20s, died at the scene.

None of the victims has been identified.
