|A messy accident scene in Buena Park last night.|
The vehicle slammed into a guard rail, rolled over several times and wound up on its side just west of the Auto Center Drive on-ramp. Fire fully engulfed the vehicle, whose occupants had been ejected.
Three Buena Park police officers, who were the first to roll up on the scene, pulled the driver and 16-year-old safely away from the flames. The three women were pronounced dead at the scene.
