Two people were killed Tuesday morning after a car crashed into the back of a semi-truck, causing both vehicles to burst into flames on the eastbound 101 Freeway in Agoura Hills.

The crash happened around 12:15 a.m. when a car crashed into the trailer of a semi-truck near the Chesebro Road exit. Not long after the crash, both vehicles became fully engulfed in flames, authorities said.

It was unclear what caused the crash. Authorities did not release the identities of the victims nor what vehicles they were in.

A short stretch of the 101 Freeway near the accident was reduced to one lane as detectives investigated the scene and crews cleaned up. It was cleared around 5:15 a.m.
