An investigation is underway into a fatal single car crash that happened around 2:30 a.m. Monday north of Sandy near Southeast Hudson and Lusten roads.

The car hit a tree and caught fire.  A neighbor rescued one person who was taken to a hospital on Life Flight.  That person died at the hospital.

Three other people in the car were killed.

A small dog ran from the car.  It was later captured.  It suffered burn injuries and was taken to a veterinarian.  The dog had a microchip that police hope will help them identify one of the victims.

The medical examiner will need to identify the other victims, because of the fire.
