Police in Ontario on Monday were investigating an accident that left five people dead after a vehicle slammed into a home.

The crash occurred early Sunday when a 2005 Nissan Sentra ran a red light at South Haven Avenue near East Creekside Drive and plowed into the home, according to the Ontario Police Department.

Four people inside the car were pronounced dead at the scene, police said. A fifth occupant was pronounced dead at a local hospital. Their names were not released because relatives had not been notified.

Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Steve Hunt at (909) 395-2902.
