Four people are dead, and two people are suffering from major injuries after a head-on collision off San Juan Avenue.

According to CHP, this happened just after 1:30a.m. A Buick LeSabre driving in the southbound lane and a Subaru Outback traveling in the northbound lane of San Juan Avenue just south of Madison Avenue collided head on.

Shortly after, the Buick caught on fire.

A “Good Samaritan” was able to pull two females out of the Buick, CHP said. The Samaritan was also able to pull the driver of the Subaru — David Mazur, 26, Citrus Heights — out of the car.

Two males and two females in the Buick died from their injuries. One of the females who was pulled out of the car was taken to a local hospital, along with Mazur, with major injuries.

The accident is currently under investigation, and it is not clear which car drifted to the left, crossed over and went the wrong way. It is unknown if alcohol or drugs contributed to the collision.

According to CHP, it appeared that at least one car was traveling at a high rate of speed. Due to the extent of fire damage of the Buick, it is unknown if seat belts were being used properly.
