The authorities said a dark-colored Elentra crashed into the rear of a semi-truck that was traveling in the slow lane.

The car ended up underneath the semi-truck trailer.

Two people who were inside the car were killed in the accident.

A third person in the sedan was injured, but their condition was not immediately known.

A third vehicle reportedly crashed into the Elentra just after the first collision.

The driver of the third vehicle remained at the scene.

The driver of the semi-truck fled the scene after the collision. The suspect was later located by CHP officers, miles away in Oildale.

The crash remains under investigation.
