Filipina Bride, 4 Others Die in Car Fire

SAN FRANCISCO--Five women died late Saturday when a limousine heading to a bridal shower burst into flames on the San Mateo Bridge, trapping the victims inside while the driver and four other women escaped, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. The woman for whom the bridal shower was being thrown--31-year-old Neriza Fojas of Fresno--was among those killed, her sister said Sunday. She had recently married and had planned to return to the Philippines for another ceremony next month. The dead women were all in their 30s and 40s, the CHP said.
