Three men were killed early Saturday in Kelseyville, CA when their car ran off the road, hit a tree and burst into flames, the California Highway Patrol said.

The crash happened about 2:20 a.m. on Gold Dust Drive at Wilson Road, Sgt. Nenad Gorenec said.

The 2010 Chevy Camaro was headed south on Gold Dust Drive at a high rate of speed when it failed to stop at the intersection, continued across the road and hit a metal fence in front of a house, Gorenec said.

It careened off the fence and hit the tree before becoming engulfed in flames, he said.

The men likely died on impact, Gorenec said.

He said their bodies were burned beyond recognition. Their identities would be confirmed over the next week by dental records, he said.


In addition to speeding, these people were most likely drunk or on drugs.  Most of them kill or get killed in the early A.M. hours, like here.

For most of lives, fraternal twins Abril and Brisa Delapaz were inseparable, according to relatives.

Last year, the 26-year-old sisters had gone on their first trip to Europe. A little more than a week ago, they had just participated in a 5K run in Chicago. And, naturally, on Saturday they both went to a friend's going-away party.


Police said it was about 4:45 p.m. when their Dodge Neon crashed into the back of a parked semi truck in the 10300 block of South Commercial Avenue in the city's South Deering neighborhood.

Brisa had been driving south toward the Hegewisch neighborhood. They were almost home.


"You could never have one without the other," said their brother Pablo Delapaz, 27, Sunday evening.

Delapaz said. "It’s just crazy. They came into this world together and went out together."

Only two weeks earlier, Abril Delapaz had graduated from Roosevelt University where she was studying biochemistry, Delapaz said. She had just started a medical internship at Rush University Medical Center.

"It was great," Pablo Delapaz said. "She was the first one in the family to go that far. She went to the extreme because she really wanted to make a difference."

Brisa also had attended Southern Illinois University in an effort to start a career in zoology.

Even though the sisters were attached at the hip, they each were remembered for own personality.

"Abril loved music. She was always dancing. Brisa was a goof. If anything happened, she would roll with it."

"They were always crazy, but they were also thoughtful," he added. "Both were a godsend to the family."

The sisters were the centerpiece of a tight-knit family who lived together in their home in the Hegewisch neighborhood on the city's Far South Side.

"Our mom is so distraught," Delapaz said. "When our father heard, he just broke down."Funeral services are pending

4 people are dead after a house fire in Oxford, North Carolina








Sunday, May 28, 2017 08:45PM
OXFORD, North Carolina (WTVD) -- Authorities said four people are dead after a house fire.

Around 3 a.m. Sunday morning, the Oxford Police Department and Oxford Fire Department were dispatched to 215 Rectory St. for a residential structure fire.

When crews arrived, they found that the home was fully engulfed and neighbors advised that the residents could possibly still be inside.

Once the fire was under control, firefighters entered the house and discovered four bodies.

Authorities said the victims are between the ages of 18 to 75.

The victims have been sent to the North Carolina Medical Examiner's Office in Raleigh.

Their names have not yet been released.

An investigation is ongoing.

Two children and their grandmother were killed in a Sunday morning fire in North Philadelphia. 52-year-old Monique Guillory died as well as 9-year-old Prudence Figueroa and her 7-year-old brother Dean Figueroa.













NORTH PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Two children and their grandmother were killed in a Sunday morning fire in North Philadelphia.

The children's great-grandfather, Paul Guillory, and other family members gathered outside the damaged rowhome Sunday afternoon to begin to mourn.

The woman who was killed in the fire was Guillory's daughter, identified by family as 52-year-old Monique Guillory.

The young victims were her grandchildren, 9-year-old Prudence Figueroa and her 7-year-old brother Dean Figueroa.

Family members say the three lived in the home on the 1700 block of North 6th Street with Monique's daughter, who is the mother of the children, and her boyfriend.

"The kids were beautiful, always smiling, happy. She was a great woman," family member Amanda Gonzalez said.

Philadelphia Fire Commissioner Adam Thiel said firefighters were called out at 4:42 a.m. to the report of fire with people trapped inside the building.

Arriving firefighters quickly went to work battling the intense flames. Thiel said 30 vehicles and 100 personnel were called to the scene.

Officials say a parent inside the home was able to safely drop the 9-year-old girl to the firefighters. The child, who had suffered multiple burns, was taken to Hahnemann University Hospital where she died from her injuries.

Shortly after 7:30 a.m., once firefighters could go in the home, which remained unstable due to fire damage, they found the bodies of the second child and his grandmother.

"Despite our best efforts - these folks are the best in the world - sometimes it's just too late. It's very sad. It's tragic. It hurts for us. It hurts for our entire community," Thiel said.


Neighbor Ed Norat told Action News he woke up to screams of help from a man and a woman inside the burning home.

"When I came running outside, I see flames coming out of the window and the parents were screaming out for help. As I approached the building, I looked up at the third floor, I see someone hanging out, she was asking for help, there was nothing much I could do. I told her to 'hold up, hold up, the fire department is coming.' A young girl," Norat said.

Norat called 911, but said it was a horrible feeling that he couldn't do anything more to help the girl.

Norat said he watched the man jump from the roof to the ground. He said the woman also escaped the fire.

"She was screaming that her mother was in there and her kids," Norat said.

The American Red Cross is providing three adults with emergency assistance for lodging, food and clothing.

The Red Cross is also providing emotional support and counseling for the family members of those who lost their lives.

Nine hours after the fire started, the Red Paw Relief Team found a pet turtle alive in the home.

There is no word on a cause at this time.

Last Sunday, three people were killed in an early morning fire in the Wynnefield section of Philadelphia.

In hopes of preventing tragic fire incidents, the Philadelphia Fire Department says they will come to homes and install smoke detectors for free. And if anyone has any questions on fire safety, they say to call them.

U.S. Navy SEAL killed in parachute accident at Fleet Week event in Jersey City

JERSEY CITY, New Jersey (WABC) -- A U.S. Navy SEAL was killed on Sunday when his parachute malfunctioned during a Fleet Week event at Liberty State Park in Jersey City.

Four SEALs on a parachute team dropped out of a helicopter during a stunt, but one of those parachutes did not open.

"One of the team members' parachute malfunctioned. The Navy SEAL's parachute failed to open properly, and he landed in the water adjacent to Liberty State Park," said USN Admiral Jack Scorby, the US Navy Commander of the Mid-Atlantic.

A piece of the parachute fell to the ground, and moments after, the Navy SEAL cut himself loose, and splashed into the water.

He was rescued immediately by the US Coast Guard and Marine unit teams who were on standby. He was then rushed to Jersey City Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead an hour later.

"I ask for all of your prayers for the Navy SEAL community, who lost a true patriot today," added Admiral Scorby.

The Navy SEAL was a member of the Leap Frogs, an elite US Navy Parachute Team.

In Jersey City, four SEALs were supposed to land in the park. The parachute demonstration was a part of a Fleet Week event. It was part of several events, like an unrelated helicopter demonstration that had many spectators confused an unaware of the tragedy that had just taken place.

The cause of the parachute malfunction is under investigation.

The Navy SEAL's identity is being withheld pending family notification.
