MONTCLAIR, Calif. (KABC) -- Two people were killed while a man and a 5-year-old boy were fighting for their lives Sunday after a possible DUI-related crash in Montclair.

Police were investigating the crash that happened at the intersection of Howard Street and Ramona Avenue around 10:30 p.m. Saturday.

Two people were killed in the collision, which left two vehicles severely damaged. Video of the scene showed what appeared to be an SUV on its roof with a trail of debris leading to a sedan that sustained significant damage to its driver side.

The two people who died were inside the sedan, and the 5-year-old was transported to an area hospital in critical condition, according to Montclair police.

A man in the other vehicle was also hospitalized in critical condition.
