A head on crash on Highway 14 near Red Rover Mine Road claimed the lives of a man and a woman Sunday morning. Two other people involved were injured.

Dead are 39-year-old Hispanic man and a 47-year-old woman “of unknown race,” said Lt. Joe Bale of the Los Angeles County Department of Coroner.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash and the woman died later in the hospital, Bale said.

There was no word given on the condition of the other two victims.

At about 8:20 a.m. Sunday, a vehicle southbound on Highway 14 crossed over into the northbound lanes near Red Rover Mine colliding with a second vehicle, said Officer Tatiana Saukuillo of the California Highway Patrol.

At 8:26 a.m.,  paramedics with the Los Angeles County Fire Department were dispatched, said department Capt. Bernard Peters.

“We responded to a report of two vehicles involved in a traffic collision,” he said. “One vehicle was in the center divider and the other in the northbound lanes.”

Four victims were found at the crash site, Peters said.

“One was pronounced dead at the scene we were told,” he said. “One was airlifted to ‘a nearby hospital’ and two others were taken to hospital by ambulance.”

Traffic was shutdown on the highway for more than three hours.
