Bride killed in limo fire after Tragic fire in limo kills bride and 4 others, Five people were killed Saturday night after a limousine that was on it's way to a bridal shower erupted into flames on the San Mateo Bridge. The bride-to-be, along with the other victims, was trapped inside while the driver and four other women managed to escape, KTVU explained on May 5.

According to the report, police received calls of a white Lincoln town car limo that was ablaze on Highway 92, just east of Foster City, at about 10 p.m., California Highway Patrol Officer Art Montiel stated to the press.

“It appears the white town car limo was traveling westbound on the number three lane, when for some unknown reason, caught on fire,” said Montiel. “Driver stopped the vehicle in the number three lane.”

The limo driver, Orville Brown, 46, immediately stopped the limo and got out when he noticed the fire. He was able to escape uninjured. The nine passengers in the limo were all women in their 30s, Montiel said.

Five of the passengers were killed in the limo fire, and four others were taken to nearby hospitals to be treated for smoke inhalation and burns.

The bridal party was reportedly driving from Oakland to a hotel in Foster City when the fire broke out in the back of the limo, the San Mateo County Coroner's office said in a statement.
LimoStop Inc. is the company that owns the limo and they said they are cooperating in the official investigation.

"We are deeply saddened by the tragedy last night involving the young women, five of whom lost their lives in the limousine fire on the San Mateo Bridge," said the Statement. "LimoStop Inc. will do everything possible to investigate and assist authorities in determining the cause of this fire in order to help bring forth answers and provide closure to the victims and their families."

The bride killed in the limo fire was identified as Neriza Fojas. None of the other women killed have been identified as of yet.

The cause of the limo fire is still unknown, but a thorough investigation will be conducted, Montiel said.
