Three sisters have tragically died in a fiery head-on crash during a weekend road trip.
Melissa, 26, Jasmine, 22, and Priscilla Rojas-Carrasco, 16, were driving to the US state of Idaho on Saturday about 2.20pm (local time) when their Honda Civic collided with a GMC Sierra near Marsing.
The three sisters died in the crash, along with 22-year-old Juan Pablo Farias.
Idaho State Police said after the crash the GMC caught fire and destroyed the vehicle.
"Troopers say they spoke to a witness who stopped and helped the occupants of the pickup out of the vehicle," police said.
Tanya Hobel, who helped pull the three people out of the GMC, told local news station KTVB she was warned to stay away.
"A gentleman came walking towards me from the accident and told me not to proceed," she said.
"And I said, 'Well I can see flames from the vehicle, I can see smoke from the vehicle', and he informed me that there was nothing we could do.
"For some reason, I just kept proceeding forward because I knew I had to.
"Whether I could help or not, I just wanted to know what I could do."
Three people in the GMC, a 21-year-old man, 16-year-old man and 20-year-old woman, were rushed to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

A GoFundMe page for the sisters, from California, said there were "no words to describe the pain of losing such beautiful and bright young ladies".
Two crowdfunding pages have been set up to raise money for the family of the sisters, with one raising A$33,000 and the other A$16,000.
Police are still investigating the cause of the crash.
