Police in Antioch believe excessive speed and wet conditions most likely led to a fatal crash Friday that killed two people and injured four others.

Officers with the Antioch Police Department responded Friday at 9 p.m. to Lone Tree Way and Indian Hill Drive on a report of a vehicle that had crashed into a tree.

Responding officers located a vehicle on the south sidewalk of Lone Tree Way that had sustained extensive damage.

Officers found one passenger had been ejected from the vehicle during the crash, and five people were still trapped inside the vehicle.

Responding firefighters had to extricate the victims trapped in the vehicle.

Four of the victims were transported to local trauma centers with injuries that ranged from moderate to life threatening, and two victims were pronounced deceased at the scene.
