MOUNT SHASTA, Calif. - Three people were killed after a fatal head-on crash in Mount Shasta Sunday afternoon.


The California Highway Patrol says the driver of a pick-up truck was driving southbound when they entered a construction zone.

Both vehicles went down an embankment and burst into flames.


The truck driver and the driver of the passenger of the motorhome all died on the scene.


The identities of the deceased have not been released by authorities.
