Four people died after an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) they were riding rolled over and burst into flames on a dirt road in central Washington’s Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest.

The accident happened on Saturday afternoon when 24-year-old Conner Jenkins of Orting crashed his side-by-side ATV west of the town of Liberty. Jenkins’ friend, 23-year-old Benjamin Gomez Santana of Covington, and a couple they met that day, 26-year-old Devon Anonson of Kent and 24-year-old Halle Cole of Maple Valley, were also in the vehicle.

Gomez Santana and Cole died at the scene. Jenkins and Anonson were flown by helicopter to a burn center in Seattle, where they both died.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
