A woman and a child were killed and four juveniles were injured after a SUV slammed into a tree and flipped Tuesday night in Oceanside, police said.
The solo-vehicle crash was reported shortly after 8:15 p.m. on Douglas Road near Pala Road, police said.
Investigators believe the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed when it slammed into the tree and then rolled, said police spokesperson Jennifer Atenza. It was not known if drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash.
The four injured youths were taken to area trauma hospitals to be treated. No information about the extent of their injuries was released.
The crash is under investigation.
